If These Locs Could Talk

The short poetic documentary, If These Locs Could Talk, speaks to the part of us dedicated to changing narratives that don’t honor our humanity. This is a love letter to us, from us. It captures the rich and complex simplicity of our hair, specifically our loc’d hair. This subsection of the community has long been overlooked or relegated to a specific part of the Black diaspora. But, Locs are versatile and so are the people that rock them.

This piece speaks alongside those people, illustrating the why’s and how’s of their loc journey and what it means to them. Through this we learn more of ourselves as a community and are again reminded of the vastness of our expression.

The film premiered at Issa Rae’s Hoorae Takeover at The Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. So far, it has won Best Documentary Short at The African Film & Arts Festival in Dallas and Best Documentary Short at The Micheaux Film Festival in Los Angeles.
