1973 documentary titled "Love"?

The Golden Globe awards' website lists among their nominees for Best Documentary Film for the 1974 awards (films released in 1973) a film titled Love. See https://www.goldenglobes.com/winners-nominees/documentary and https://www.goldenglobes.com/film/love .

However, it's apparent that whoever compiled information for the Golden Globes website had no information about this film. Nor is there any documentary from the 1970s listed in IMDb whose title is just Love. (All the films in IMDb from the 1970s with that title appear to be fiction rather than documentaries.)

Despite all the questions that have arisen regarding the Golden Globes over the years, I have to suspect that they had some actual film in mind when they nominated this documentary. Does anyone have any idea what it might be? If it is not listed in IMDb yet, but it can be identified, we might be able to get it listed in the database.

Possibly Ljubav (1972)

From https://sr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Влатко_Гилић via Google translate:

In a survey by the Film Institute in Belgrade, "Ljubav" was declared the best achievement in the history of Yugoslav cinematography in a short film production and was nominated among the top five in the competition for the "Golden Globe Award".

MUBI calls it a documentary.

Peter: I can't be sure that this is the correct film, but it seems like a good candidate. The main doubt I have is that it is a short and I would not have expected it to be competing against features.

In any event, thank you for the suggestion and research.
