New York Cuts, with filmmaker Luke Lorentzen
Show Summary: This week, Stanford University presents a pre-release screening of New York Cuts, the latest work from documentarian Luke Lorentzen. New York Cuts explores a variety of barbershops and hair salons throughout disparate cultural enclaves of New York City. Focusing on themes of ethnicity, class, and community, conversations between stylists and clients are observed and intertwined in a portrait of urban multiculturalism. Luke Lorentzen is an undergraduate Film Studies major and American Studies minor at Stanford University. His short film Santa Cruz Del Islote, documenting life on a three-acre Columbian island, won multiple awards and screened internationally.
