A tribute to the world's most hated school subject

HOW I CAME TO HATE MATH aims to explore the inherent beauty of the field of mathematics. Through a series of interviews with renowned mathematical geniuses, including the eccentric Field Medal laureate Cedric Villani and hedge fund manager Jim Simons, this critically acclaimed documentary takes the viewer on a journey through the modern history of mathematics. We get a thorough look at education reforms in the 1960's, the 2008 financial crisis and the many practical applications of the world's most hated school subject.
