Chez jolie coiffure is a documentary about the friendships, trials, and triumphs of a group of West-African migrants living in Brussels. Alongside the film’s protagonist Sabine, a Cameroonian hairdresser whose boisterous personality is matched by her extravagant hairstyles, director Rosine Mbakam embeds herself within the confines of an exemplary diasporic space: Sabine’s hair salon. The salon is exposed to police raids and the gazes of white interlopers, but it provides respite for Sabine as she struggles against the perpetual uncertainty of her situation. In French with English subtitles. Contains mature content.
