Marvin came to Canada from Jamaica in the early 1950s. With no Black barbers in his neighbourhood, he endured many painful haircuts as a child. At 65, he still hates to get his haircut. A funny and refreshing take on the classic immigrant story, The Haircut is an exploration of assimilation and resistance through the portrait of one man's refusal to cut his hair.
