Pass the Comb

Date: Wednesday 29 Aug, 7pm – 9pm

Pass the Comb is a 15 minute short film which tells the story of Jerome, a youngster in conflict and Chantelle, his older sister who uses her calming influence, reasoning skills and the cultural tradition of braiding hair on her younger brother.  Each completed corn-row demonstrates the benefit of Chantelle’s ‘hair therapy’, words of wisdom and advice.

But how did Chantelle get so wise?  And is she really the picture of innocence she portrays?
