BAD HAIR

Junior, a nine-year-old living in Caracas, wants nothing more than to straighten his unruly hair—a fixation that stirs homophobic panic in his overtaxed mother. Each effort Junior makes to alter his appearance and gain his mother’s love is brushed off with abrasive avoidance until he’s ultimately faced with a heartbreaking decision. With a painfully tender performance by Samuel Lange, Bad Hair captures the search for identity as it clashes with intolerance. |Read More
