The film, debuted by Nataal at the art fair AKAA (Also Known as Africa) in Paris, brings to the forefront a standard of beauty which has previously been marginalised. Discussing the context behind traditional hairstyling, natural African hair and the strong cultural links that they possess, one girl in the film states, “You just don’t see it! Hopefully if other girls do see this it will make them feel proud, or make them feel more comfortable in where they come from.” There is an overwhelming sense of pride in the voices of the women as they discuss their heritage and cultural traditions which, although removed from their day-to-day lives, have played an integral role in how they have come to define themselves. The result is a thoughtful visual representation of hair and its links with identity. Reflective, intimate and celebratory, This Hair Of Mine creates a nuanced portrait of black women, their hair and their cultural heritage.
