Short film
The Film All-Nighter

Imagine a world in which cultural appropriation was a virus: white people, appropriating black culture with a vampiric intent, infect Black culture at large with their white-washed version of it. That’s the premise of Hair Wolf. Set in a black hair salon, the staff is confronted with this strange new species. A gentrification horror comedy.
