A visit to the hairdresser’s has the unspoken status of a social activity that offers the time and space for discussing more or less fundamental issues. The same is true of Fifi’s, a Haifa beauty salon owned by a Christian Arab. The young director positioned her camera above one of the sinks in order to film conversations with random customers in a place where the women feel safe. Built upon a simple conceptual outline, the documentary investigates Arab-Jewish social coexistence, while also capturing women’s opinions on politics, history, love, and life.. (KVIFF)
