Moving and hopeful

Wonderful short, well cast and well acted. I could have watched a full length movie with these characters.

It's not about hair. It's about identity.

Contrary to what the other reviewer says: I care. This film isnt just about a girl deciding between different hair styles, in fact it's more than that. Dolapo is told that in order to succeed in her dream profession its "assimilation first" she must get rid of her afro and use a whiter sounding name. Yet when Dolapo tries to conform, using the name Dolly and buying herself a wig we find that her character is becoming more uncomfortable with the idea of conformation to the white-centric workplace. The film wants you empathise for the character as you want her to succeed but not at the cost at her own identity and in my opinion it succeeds in doing so, and especially thanks to Dojin Ajiboye's acting. In the end she must choose whether to follow the advice she was given by Daisy and conform or decide to stand out from the crowd and show off her true hair and heritage. This film is a very sweet and honest film with a lesson about identity at the heart of it. I would definitely recommend watching it and I'm excited to see more from the people involved!

Be Yourself

This movie finished before a realized it was a short movie. It is a story about stereotypes, what you choose to believe and being yourself. Dolapo is a young and brilliant high school girl who is enthusiastic about working in Finance in the city. She is mentored by a black lady who already works in the city and believes there are certain appearances that will be accepted or welcomed in the city. She advises Dolapo about her hair and her name. After an embarrassing occurrence at school, Dolapo made a decision to be herself....reverting back to her previous hairstyle and walking gallantly to the city for her interview. It's a funny movie and I'll recommend it if you're looking for something quick to watch.
