Cutting Loose

Short Film Promotion Scheme Awardee

Synopsis

“I’m trusted with a pair of scissors and I’m in here for murder”. Prison life in the build up to the annual Scottish Prison Service hairdressing competition. Winning the coveted prize is the ultimate goal, but Francis, the current champion has other objectives on his mind. We hear dreams and aspirations of some of Scotland’s most dangerous prisoners turning their lives around through cutting the hair of fellow inmates on a daily basis. “10 minutes in here is like 10 minutes outside jail” We discover how hairdressing is helping many of Scotland’s prisoners come to terms with their crimes and preparing them for life outside.
