Afro-Caribbean barbershops tend to provide a safe space for the black male community. They are environments charged with boisterous hilarity and touching honesty in equal measure. With the barber’s chair acting as a makeshift therapist’s couch, Love Languages is a nuanced and intimate portrayal of these conversations as six black men share their personal experiences of love and loss through emotive introspection, whilst challenging perceptions of their identity and black masculinity.

About the Filmmaker

Having started his career as a music producer, Jason transitioned to the world of film after spending time in various corporate roles. Passionate about the increase of under-represented stories on screen, he is a huge believer that narrative can act as the driving force to our beliefs and our decision-making. As such, his films are often centred on reframing the portrayal of these under-represented groups. Jason is an inaugural recipient of the Netflix Documentary Talent Fund and the co-founder of Project Must Entertainment, an independent production company focused on documentary, scripted, factual entertainment, digital and music projects. He is currently in production on his first 1-hour television documentary.
