An Entomologist’s Love Story
Written by Melissa Ross
Directed by Giovanna Sardelli
“An affecting, wistful story, full of hope for the way we non-insects can learn to connect.” – San Francisco Examiner
“Finally! A romantic comedy for people who love insects.” – Mercury News
Working at the Museum of Natural History has its ups and downs for entomologists Betty and Jeff. As they research the mating rituals of bugs, they find their own complicated relationships increasingly under the microscope. An Entomologist’s Love Story is a hilarious, edgy and explicit look at love in our times.
