''Love Hate and Everything in Between'' explores the role of empathy and its extraordinary relevance in today’s increasingly interconnected world.
Man’s ability to show extreme kindness and solidarity is foreshadowed only by his ability to be as cruel and destructive. Can empathy resolve issues of aggression and subjugation, where wars, politics and economic sanctions have failed?
New research in neuroscience, psychology, education and technology suggests it might.
World’s leading scientists and social thinkers investigate the future of empathy. Featuring: Vittorio Gallese, Simon Baron Cohen, Frans De Waal, Mary Gordon, Theodore Zeldin, and Jeremy Rifkin.

JUST TRIAL AND ERROR
Consciousness defies definition. Perhaps no aspect of mind is more familiar or more puzzling than consciousness and our conscious world. ''Just Trial and Error'' takes a closer look at what divides and connects us, by exploring consciousness through cognitive and perceptual science, technology and art. Filmmaker Alex Gabbay invites a sculptor, two neuroscientists and a technology entrepreneur to explore the part consciousness plays in their respective fields.
FOOTBALL, COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE
In order to understand how collective intelligence develops in a team, we take a close look at the work and thoughts of Christian Gourcuff, a French Football (soccer) coach, who is using interesting ideas to create its strategy. This pragmatic approach is illuminated by the scientific concepts of Systems Theory. The film offers a new way of thinking about football as the organization of a complex system, by observing how a team develops a strategy over the course of training sessions and matches, and how the individuals on the team form a collective intelligence.
