Permanent Wave

This is fast paced drama about sexual harassment in the workplace from a child's perspective. The "Beautiful Dreamer Salon" is owned by Eva, a single parent who manages to juggle her clients, her employees, and her daughter, all in a day's work. Her multicultural clientele interact in hilarious sequences with the equally diverse hairdressers. The film allows a deeper look at sexual harassment on the job and other issues that lie just below the surface of everyday life in the workplace.
"Technique for us is secondary. The people themselves have a rich life experience, a knowledge of history and their culture and community organization. And these people are far more qualified to make films than people who have learned their skills in a school."

-Christine Choy
