Documentary / Kerstin Holl / Germany / 2019 / 45 min / German

Anyone who experiences insufficient physical touch or contact becomes ill. For which reason some people deliberately seek out physical closeness at "cuddle parties", or get themselves a pet. Anthropologists, haptic researchers and the members of a five-generational family speak about what this means for our brains and our wellbeing.

Filmtalk: The power of touch and its influence on our mental and physical health. What can we learn from animal about our social behaviour?
