Sundance Films: Good Hair

Title: Good Hair
Director: Jeff Stilson
Website: No website found
Potential Major Release Date: No known release date beyond Sundance

Summary: Rendered speechless by his daughter's question -- "Daddy, how come I don't have good hair?" -- comedian Chris Rock embarks on a quest to understand African American hair culture in director Jeff Stilson's insightful, entertaining documentary. From salons to scientific labs, Rock travels the globe to explore the business of black hair. Rock also hears candid personal stories and gets advice from Raven-Symoné, Maya Angelou and other celebrities (NetFlix).

Thoughts: Why is there no website or trailer or release date for this? Anything Chris Rock works on should instantly have a major distributor attached. In other words, this sounds like one of his standup joke turned into a documentary- which is a very good thing. Rock is known for opinions that are both hilarious and also insightful and as long as director Jeff Stilson stays out of the way this has to be a success.
