After a successful campaign on the global festival circuit, the award winning feature length documentary The Fade is now available to watch on Vimeo on Demand.
Directed by Andy Mundy-Castle, creator of Channel 4’s The Black Lesbian Handbook and Director and Producer of Bronx Tales (promotional films for Netflix’s The Get Down), The Fade transports us to and from Accra, London, New Jersey and Kingston Jamaica for a candid perspective on the lives of four barbers.
We are introduced to Johnny “Cakes” Castellanos responsible for the images of Jay Z and Pharrell Williams. Faisal, barber to David Harewood and Adrian Lester, Shawn Powis the man behind Elephant Man’s signature style and Offori “Tupac” Mensah, Accra’s most wanted on a Friday night.
The film displays the power of entrepreneurship and the mobility it provides for individual goals and status within the community.
