Is your hair strange? Is your hair professional? Why natural and not straight? These are some of the questions explored in HAIR FREEDOM, a short documentary by Zindzi Rocque Drayton on the natural hair movement, Black beauty, and the term "natural hair."
HAIR FREEDOM was filmed, produced, and edited by Drayton, who is based in South West London, as part of BBC Raw.
"Raw is a BBC Pilot Project, an incubator for socially and racially diverse young people who want to develop into filmmakers for the BBC," as described on their channel.
