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.

With a painfully tender performance by Samuel Lange, Bad Hair captures the search for identity as it clashes with intolerance. |Read More
