It reminded me of another video project I discovered recently and have been enjoying enormously: The {} And. This is a series of videos of interviews between pairs of people, mostly in close relationships (partners, siblings, friends, parent-child), where they're given a series of questions to ask each other about their experiences in their relationships.

Check them out; they're both really wonderful.
