Join us for a Skype Q&A with director Michaël Andrianaly after the film.

“Hairdressing, is one of the finest trades: you touch the head of ano­ther human being.” When doing so, Romeo also seems to encounter fears, anger and the dreams that lend the film its title. An itinerant huis clos, Nofinofy follows this arti­san as he searches for a decent place to practice his art, as he moves around Tamatave from one neighbourhood to another, from one shack to another. Over the months what does not change is that Romeo’s hairdressing salon is a place of life where (mainly) men meet, drink, tell jokes or very seriously discuss their country’s future.

An intimate and close look at everyday life Madagascar, lensed by Michaël Andrianaly who achieves to capture unseen nuances of a man struggling for his dignity. NOFINOFY won the Institut Français at the prestigious Cinéma du Réel Festival.
