Nine year old Junior lives with his kid sister and single mom in a giant, dilapidated housing project in Caracas. He spends his time observing the neighbours and dreaming of having straight hair "like a pop singer". But in a Venezuela heading for social breakdown, young boys are not encouraged to sing and dance and worry about their hair. Equal parts improvised drama, well-crafted coming-of-age story and critical commentary of Venezuelan socio-economic politics, BAD HAIR is one of this year's most pleasant surprises.
