Director Statement

If you have ever heard about the three wise monkeys or the expression “curiosity killed the cat, then you already know the basic human story that drives this film. Using dark humor in the style of the Coen brothers and Quentin Tarantino, Hear No Evil dwells in the boundaries among people where temptations beckon and secrets hide. All chaos must be quelled, all bad people punished. n Eastern Cinema, we are accustomed to Karma endings, but does it truly exist?
