About this submission

This film is inspired by Antonia, the woman who used to cut my hair up until her recent retirement. I would follow her wherever she would go from swap meets to salons to her apartment. Each visit felt like an escape from the weight of the world. Each haircut felt like a visit with family, a moment of comfort. This film aims to capture the stress of a bad hair day contrasted with the warmth and love a salon/barber shop can offer. A testament to their role in building community and character.
