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
