“Right Between Your Ears is an engaging, kind and sober film about a hugely important topic: what happens when people who are absolutely certain of something realize they are wrong. The filmmakers have pinpointed how crucial cognitive dissonance is in many of the world’s problems, and have probed the topic in a really appealing way.” Jon Ronson, Best-selling author of “The Men Who Stare at Goats” and “The Psychopath Test”.
In a world of increasing division, conflict and violence what could be more important than understanding the mechanisms within ourselves driving us to live this way? The film explores this in the most effective and engaging way using personal stories and neuroscience-based evidence.
