Chronic Youth 2020

A lighthearted and captivating insight into black masculinity in Denmark from a barber's chair.

Situated in the housing estate of Vollsmose, Denmark, Emil Langballe lends his camera to barbershop owner Qasim, a hardworking entrepreneur and community anchor. This intimate and warm hearted documentary paints the breadth of black masculinity with rich and vibrant colours.

It showcases the importance of community endeavours to survival and joy as the barbershop becomes a second home to local East African men of all ages.

We're pleased to welcome London barbershop owner, and Barbershop Chronicles consultant Peter Atakpo for the Q&A after the screening.
