MI PAJÓN: HERENCIA DEL PELO DOMINICANO (My Afro: Heritage of Dominican Hair) Directed by Duarte Geraldino, 2017
A young Dominican-American woman embraces her African heritage and moves back to Santo Domingo to open a beauty salon that does not straighten hair. By encouraging and teaching women to wear their hair naturally she hits a political nerve.
Una mujer Dominicana-Americana acoge su herencia Africana y regresa a Santo Domingo para abrir un salón de belleza que no alisa pelo. A través de su fomento y formación acerca del uso de pelo natural, toca una fibra muy sensible.
