The National Center of Competence in Research Affective Sciences – Emotions in Individual Behavior and Social Processes (NCCR – Affective Sciences) is the most important organization that conducts large-scale studies on human emotions. Emotions, as we know them, are what most represent and identify the human being.
They are our story and our uniqueness. Moreover, they represent ourselves both consciously and unconsciously. They are present in the way we perceive things that surround us, through our senses. All this makes our experience something live and real. This film is an ode to the complexity of what lies under our most significant experiences.

AFFECTIVE SCIENCES is an investigation of this scientific structure, an attempt to deconstruct its complexity, by observing the places and the voices that contribute to defining its identity.
