Maths has always bored you, you have always thought that being bad in maths was a fatality, in short you have always hated it! We could have just laughed about it if it hadn't taken such a place in our society: Apple, Google, Goldman Sachs are nothing but algorithms and mathematical formulas.

How did maths come to suffer from such disaffection at the very moment when it is ruling the world? Through a journey to the four corners of the world with the greatest mathematicians, including Cédric Villani (Fields Medal 2010).
How I hated math tells us how mathematics has changed our world, for the better... and sometimes for the worse.

Here I contributed to the music of the film with the title "Kantele" - Publisher Peermusic France - Sacem. This title joined the other musics of the soundtrack of the film composed by Nicolas Khun.
