Note :
25-year-old Ivan is living in a small, freezing cold and remote Russian village. He works as a cowhand and leads a rather routine and uneventful life. Then one day a stranger approaches him and offers him a job, and without any hesitation or questions, Ivan follows him to the promising, unknown city. The story is as simple as the narrative is straightforward and without much ado. HEAD. TWO EARS is a small and quiet film, addressing some of the biggest global and sociopolitical challenges of our time. Universal, existential questions are the essence of the film. What do you dream of and what are you willing to do to make your dreams come true? What is ultimately a “good life”?
