Wen Shan (Chinese superstar Hu Ge from THE WILD GOOSE LAKE) is a mediocre screenwriter struggling to make a living in Beijing. By chance, he begins to write eulogies for a living. As he restores the lives of others, he finds his own place in the city and finally realizes that ordinary people can take the center stage too. From his perpetual ennui, he soon finds meaning in his own life trajectory. Director Liu Jiayin, who is best known for her award winning hybrid documentaries OXHIDE (2005) and OXHIDE II (2009), returns after over a decade of being a film professor in Beijing. Despite not being an autobiography, ALL EARS is drawn from Liu’s personal experience and internal struggles over the years. The film world premiered at this years’ Shanghai International Film Festival, where it garnered the Best Director Prize.
