Intimate, collage-like perspective of man by man himself. Captured frontally through a mirror, the director presents black-and-white portraits of several people of various ages and backgrounds in a hairdresser’s chair. They watch themselves: searching, insecure, anticipatory, hoping to get up in a minute more attractive and confident. Observing documentary in which small hints and personal comments reveal the person behind the haircut. Made within the scope of Doc25.
