Mayor of Delfshaven
Mayor of Delfshaven is a documentary about Ladan, a woman from Iran. For the past 23 year she has run a special hair salon in Rotterdam West. Citizens of the neighbourhood shuffle in for a cup of coffee, a haircut, or just a friendly chat. Ladan is more than just a hairdresser, she fulfils an important role in the neighbourhood, her salon functions as a social gathering place. There for she is called the ‘Mayor of Delfshaven’.
With this documentary, we want to impress on the viewer the importance of her place, but also the importance of the social contact. The documentary comes with a photo-reportage about her work and the people in the salon.
