Awkward, sometimes scary, and, if you're lucky, magical, first kisses are usually the most memorable. Filmmaker Tatia Pilieva directed and captured 20 strangers meeting and kissing for the first time in her debut video First Kiss, and it will leave you with so many feels.

The black and white film starts out a little uncomfortable but somewhat funny to watch (most viewers are probably glad not to be one of the 20 strangers). Awkward first introductions are made. The strangers erupt into nervous giggles, asking questions like “What was your name again?” and “Can we turn off the lights?”

Eventually, however, what begins as awkward first encounters actually turn into something sweet and, at times, electrifying. Just watch the video below or look at the photo stills above to see for yourself.
