In this portrait of a historic black barbershop in Wilmington, North Carolina, we witness the everyday rituals that bind the men in this community together. Tight close ups illuminate intimate physical interactions in this space, and the craftsmanship of the barber; an evocative soundtrack mingles the buzz of shears with the gentle chatter between customers and those who tenderly shave, wash and groom them. Walker’s, the eponymous barbershop, emerges as a key social institution, at heart of a community.
