Jakub Polakowski, Magdalena Pytlakowska
Okiem warszawskiego fryzjera
Poland 2013 / 29’

This film is a portrait of Varsovians through the eyes of four hairstylists who run salons in different neighbourhoods of the city. Each of these salons is impervious to modernity and constantly plays host to very different personalities. The recorded conversations shows locals getting their haircuts and performing other activities. It turns out a hair salon is much more than a place you go to improve your appearance.
