Right Between Your Ears
Have you ever been convinced of something, beyond all doubt?
Many people have a strong sense that their views are right and couldn't possibly be wrong. So how do we come to hold strong convictions and why is it hard to consider we could be mistaken?
Through the eyes of a group of people convinced that they knew the date for the end of the world, Right Between Your Ears explores how people believe, how we turn beliefs into certainties, and mistake them for the truth.
A stock trader with a young family, a philosophy student about to graduate, and a retail manager who became so convinced she quit her job of 18 years. Crossing the boundaries between belief, psychology and neuroscience, the film reveals how we can become convinced we're right, even when we're wrong.
"An engaging, kind and sober film about a hugely important topic: what happens when people who are certain of something realize they are wrong."
Jon Ronson - author
"A fun and warm-hearted look at a community of doomsayers as they face the day of jugdment, it ends up saying a great deal about how we all think."
Louis Theroux - documentary filmmaker
