The Screen Guide

In A CLOSE SHAVE we are invited into the life of a young Torres Strait Islander boy, who will make his transition from Boy to Man. This happens with the first shave, a traditional ceremony, that is performed on the mainland and in the Islands to this day. A CLOSE SHAVE is a timely reminder of the importance of maintaining cultural practices within a contemporary Australian setting. From the Message Stick series.
