The Barber


Director: Melanie Aronson
Premiere: International Premiere
Country: Sweden

FADI, a Syrian refugee who works as a barber in a make-shift salon in a refugee camp in Southern Sweden provides a neutral ear for the various ethnic and political groups residing in the hotel camp. FADI’s customers reveal the struggles of every day immigrant life in Sweden and the dynamics between peoples within the camp. When FADI develops a relationship with a new client, he is forced to question his own values, which are already so often challenged by life in Sweden.

Within seconds, FADI must make a potentially life-altering decision that may alleviate the pain
from his past, but may change his future forever
