Woodpeckers Don’t Get Headaches
Не болит голова у дятла

A young boy, Mukha, dreams of being a rock musician but is forever in the shadow of his older brother, a famous basketball player. One summer, on holiday, he falls in love. Suddenly he hears music everywhere, in the rain, by the gates, even in the woodpecker’s rattle. Using both amateur and professional actors, Dinara Asanova communicates the awkwardness of youth and the fight to establish personal identity with her unique directorial insight. Electrifying.
