Director’s essay.
In the film I study our consciousness. It’s known that surrounding world perceived human Consciousness through the body with the help of feelings and emotions. Thanks to the colors of feelings, we feel Life, see its diversity and can feel it in details in the present moment. The truth of moment is experienced by us when the Consciousness is open to Life with a trust. The main character of my film finds the Truth. He is a person open to love with a special fineness of reality perception. He is very different from the majority of people. The gist of clairvoyance helps the Character via found subject, cut of woman’s braid to find his Beloved who he knew in his past lives. Being very sensitive, the Character personifies cut of hair of his Beloved and through it communicates with her Consciousness on the fine, telepathic level. Soon his beloved appears in his Life and the Character looses his prudence having given himself to Love. Surrounding reality in the person of People protests to shamanism and love madness of the Character since such a behavior is usually considered abnormal for the society. The character is forced into a psychological corner where he has to answer Everybody and confess to himself “Whether there was hair in reality?”. Or in other words “Whether there was Love?”. Such splits of personality are common to all mankind in their problem. And through the person of our Character I answer the question of the majority of people. Consciousness of my Character experiences the moment of his true birth, simultaneously suffering terrible torments to where he plunges under the crowd’s pressure. Via the face of public opinion, the Character comes to the Truth being open to everything. Yes, he loves, Love exists and only having passed dangerous and cruel way, one can be more and more convinced in it.
