The Fade

Four barbers, four lives, one story

Directed and produced by Andy Mundy-Castle

This documentary follows the story of four barbers in different countries who cut hair in the distinctive style known as “the Fade”. Set in Ghana, Jamaica, the UK and the US, the film explores the colourful lives of these four men who cut hair and tell stories across social boundaries. The feature examines parallel themes of identity, business, masculinity and culture, proving it’s more than just a haircut.
