Chez Jolie Coiffure

Rosine Mbakam

A small hairdresser’s salon in a shopping centre in the heart of Matongé. Women come to get their hair done and to gossip, men stop in to chat. The hairdresser practises her craft, her art, and talks too – about the neighbourhood, about minor and not-so-minor personal problems, integration, (irregular) migration, the country. The small salon is shown to be an essential link in the social fabric. This no-frills documentary lays bare a part of Brussels life unknown to many.
