Iris Zaki moved to London in 2009 to study documentary film. Before that, she produced various contents in the media industry. After the extremely successful short film called My Kosher Shift, Zaki enrolled into a doctoral programme within which she explores her own approach to the form of the documentary film, focusing primarily on closed communities.
At a small hair salon in Haifa, owned by an Arab Christian, the director installed a small camera over the sink. While she washed the customers’ hair, she discussed various subjects with them, such as politics and love. These discussions ultimately created a sincere and accurate image of contemporary Israel.
