Jeff Stilson

Jeff Stilson directed Good Hair (2009), which stars Chris Rock (top still) as narrator and interviewer, investigating African American hair products and styles. The film showcases Rock's warmth and good humor during a myriad of face-to-face encounters with those who spend money on attaining "good hair" and those who make money providing it. Men in a barbershop (middle) have an opinionated exchange, for example, captured well with a wide angle lens on the camera. A trip to Chennai, India (bottom) shows where human hair weaves come from.
