Afro-Saxons

"Weaving, Braiding and Dying To Win..." It's Black History Month this month and what better way to spend it by watching a film following talented Afro hair stylists as they enter the most competitive hair competition in the UK - the Black Beauty and Hair Awards. Angela is a braid stylist to the stars, Wayne and Cyndia are the leading junior stylists at the UK's biggest chain of Afro hair salons, George and Apple are a Thai couple obsessed with Afro hair and Michael is a Birmingham leading Afro stylist. All are weaving, braiding and dying to win.. Created by Chocolate Films, Afro-Saxons is a sharp and funny observational documentary for all, and has already caught the attention of film critics and several national newspapers:- "Sharp and often funny." Derek Malcom, Evening Standard "Spirted and funny documentary...it's good to see a vision of modern urban life free of grimy gun-slinging cliches" Sukhdev Sandhu, The Telegraph "An entertaining and frequently amusing documentary" FILM FOUR "If you don't find it complusive viewing, you're dead from the neck up." Elsa O'Toole, New Nation Not to mention yours truly worked as a Production Runner on set, so you can take my word for it when I say it's a fantastic documentary not to be missed!
