On Wednesday, April 7th, the 12th Annual African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA) hosted a virtual award ceremony, to honor the very best films, directors, actors, producers, artists, and world changers of our time.
Just before we see the lovable avians and piggies from Angry Birds 2 on the big screen, there’s a just as loveable ‘short’ that plays right before it, Hair Love. The story depicts the story of a young Black girl who tries to do her hair like her mother does (and fails). With a little help from her dad, things are sure to look up, or so we think. In this hilarious short there is an indescribable feeling of love that bursts from the screen while watching this, which makes it a must see in my book. The Knockturnal was fortunate enough to be able to sit down and talk to the writer (Matthew Cherry) and executive producer (Peter Ramsey) of Hair Love.
