Screening of Afro-Saxons during Black History Month
October 22, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0
Afro-Saxons is a critically acclaimed 2008 documentary about the UK’s top black hairdressers, directed by Mark Currie and Rachel Wang. The fun and inspirational film follows four hair salons as they compete to win the UK’s most prestigious Afro Hair Awards.
“In its unpretentious way, this film has something to say about creativity and entrepreneurialism and it’s impossible to watch it without a smile on your face.”
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“A spirited and often funny documentary… It’s good to see a vision of modern urban life free of grimy gunslinging clichés.”
Sukhdev Sandhu, Daily Telegraph
The documentary will be screened throughout London’s Black History Month in October 2015.
