By the time Ben died 21 people declared their romantic love for him.

What do all these I love you's mean in the end.


Voice-over narration provided is by Bonnie Piese (Star Wars Clone Wars and Revenge of the Sith) and the film stars Greg Profit ("zack & luc"). Through working with non-actors and their real, sometimes amorous, sometimes unrequited, experiences, "aidos" tells the story of Ben's 21 declarations.

"Aidos (“shame”) is a vast word in Greek. Its lexical equivalence include “awe, reverence, respect, self-respect, shamefulness, sense of honor, sobriety, moderation, regard for others, regard for the helpless, compassion, shyness, coyness, scandal, dignity, majesty, Majesty.” Shame vibrates with honor and also with disgrace, with what is chaste and with what is erotic, with coldness and also with blushing. Shame is felt before the eyes of others and also in facing oneself." -- Anne Carson
