A Hair on Your Heart

Friends Mike and Erin want to figure out the cause of their unusual heartbeat and find a science journal that tells them everything they need to know.

Creative team

Writer/director/producer: Young Cho

Filmmaker’s statement

“People nowadays are obsessed with the truthfulness of everything and discovering the core of every phenomenon. We often ignore the significance of the phenomenon itself.

Like love, scientific verification is maybe less important than perception: ‘is the love I am feeling really LOVE,’ is the happiness I am feeling really HAPPINESS,’ or, more generally ‘is the reality I’m in REAL?’

Instead, maybe we should listen more to what’s happening in the mind.

Using the genre of romantic comedy, A Hair on Your Heart looks at the reality of love.”
