Click the image above to view the trailer for Chris Rock’s newest comedy/documentary Good Hair. Here’s a snippet from the synopsis:
When Chris Rock’s daughter, Lola, came up to him crying and asked, Daddy, how come I dont have good hair? the bewildered comic committed himself to search the ends of the earth and the depths of black culture to find out who had put that question into his little girl’s head!
The film is directed by Jeff Stilson and features interviews with Paul Mooney, Ice T and Maya Angelou, amongst others. From the trailer, it seems like this one’s going to be a winner…in fact, it already won a Special Jury Prize for U.S. Documentary at this year’s Sundance Festival. Good Hair will open Oct. 9 in select cities and Oct. 23 nationwide.
