Q's Barbershop

Denmark / 2019 / documentary / 60' / Focus on Denmark

Quasim, who comes from Somalia, has a barbershop in Vollsmose, one of the most dangerous districts in Denmark. The majority of his clients are local residents and the afro hairstyle that he offers is unrivaled. Life follows its own, joyful rhythm in this peculiar salon. Carefree conversations in a barber armchair help reveal the stories of his regular clients and the owner himself. At Quasim’s, it is irrelevant where someone comes from or what they do – what counts is that everyone leaves the place with a beautiful hairstyle and in a better mood.
