THE BIG CHOP

Dir.: Derek Dow | 2016 | USA | Short Narr | 16 min

The Big Chop follows 10-years-old Kris on her natural hair journey of self-love and acceptance. Once a die-hard lover of her big Afro, negative hints from her mom and teasing on the playground causes Kris to get a perm. She continues to perm her hair as an adult until one day she has had enough. She stands in the mirror, and does the “big chop.” What follows after the chop is a pure emotional roller coaster.
