Hair can be many things to many people, but in Rosine Mbakams elegant, warmhearted documentary it makes up the strands that tie the West African customers and staff of one small Brussels hair salon to one another and to their homeland. The stores and the films heart is salon owner Sabine, a Cameroonian immigrant, surrogate mother and sister, community protector, lioness and confidant, weaving a safe space out of every trim and braid. A must-see! Highly revealing, an atypical and timely portrait of the intersection between the immigrant experience and female identity (Indiewire).
