FACING THE MIRROR

Homeless people are daring to look in the mirror. In Anna Tschannen's mobile hairdressing salon, homeless people share their stories and experiences - shaped by life in the street, determined to keep their autonomy and dignity. Through intimate shots, the camera captures the protagonists on their road right into the hidden corners of the city, demonstrating that there is only a fine line between the centre of society and its edge.
