The Ear Blu-Ray

The Ear Blu-Ray
In Kachyna's darkly satirical political-noir, a high-ranking Communist official and his wife begin to suspect that their home has been put under surveillance by the Party. Over one night, the growing tension exposes a bitter fault-line in their relationship, feeding an atmosphere of paranoia and dread. Daring to address the taboos of totalitarianism, The Ear was banned after completion, and remained unseen until the fall of Communism twenty years later. Combining a blackly-comic portrait of a disintegrating marriage with a searing critique of oppression, this landmark film remains starkly relevant today.
