Wednesday 6 | 7:51 pm Shorts Block | Segal Theatre

US | 2012 | 15 minutes | directed by Zachary Fabri

The film investigates the parallel transformation of my personal ideologies and the
neighborhood of Harlem in New York. I grew my dreadlocks and beard for 15 years.
The physical and cultural weight of my hair became a burden. The film is about
transformation, evolution and release, as is evident when I cut my hair and 200 balloons
take my hair away. This work was shot on 16 mm black and white film, in Harlem, NYC
at Marcus Garvey park on the corner of 125th street and 5 avenue.
