Beautiful Hair by Joy Sunday (Video)

beautiful-hair-joy-sundayAsked to create a school project on what she finds beautiful, a little girl (Princess Akojenu) decides to do hers on ‘beautiful hair’.

This moving short film shows the harsh reality on how our actions can unintentionally affect our offspring. On typing ‘Beautiful hair’ in the search engine, she is presented with images of models with straight hair.  At home, her mother doesn’t help the situation either; she complains about the state of her daughters hair and later, we see how relieved she is when she gets a weave.

The film description states, ‘A little girl struggles to find herself in a project on what she finds beautiful’.
