Chez Jolie Coiffure & The Two Faces of a Bamiléké Woman
Directed by Rosine Mbakam
Rising Cameroonian filmmaker Rosine Mbakam delivers two affecting portraits: Chez Jolie Coiffure, which centers on a vibrant hair salon in Brussels run by Cameroonian women, and The Two Faces of a Bamiléké Woman, Mbakam’s autobiographical film about her return to Cameroon to visit her mother.
Screenings followed by Q&A with Director Rosine Mbakam in attendance
“Intense vulnerability makes the film emotionally gripping; the contrast between a public storefront and intimate confessions makes it engrossing… Chez Jolie Coiffure unequivocally extracts a powerful sense of empathy—and urgency.” —Vox Magazine
Co-presented with the NW Film Center
