Women in Sink

It is the story of a little hair salon in the heart of the Arab community in Haifa (Israel); it is the story of a friendship between Arab and Jewish women in the city, which is considered a model of coexistence; and it is the story of Iris, the director, who worked as a hair washer at the salon so she could get to know women of the neighbourhood. Through her interaction with the women, in this unique frame, Iris wishes to tell the story of the community from the personal experience of the film's subjects, and to explore what it reflects of Israeli society.

    Suds Up: Israel’s Race Relations Bubble to Surface in ‘Women in Sink’

    Hair and harmony, as portrayed in a new Israeli-made documentary, bring New York’s Other Israel Festival to a close – though not without a few split ends.
