Satirical dark comedy Deadly Cuts will be screening as part of the 47th annual Seattle International Film Festival until 18th April 2021.
Deadly Cuts is an all-female hair salon in Piglinstown, one of the roughest neighbourhoods in Dublin.
The salon stylist Stacey (played by Ericka Roe) is determined to win a prestigious Ahh Hair competition despite being blackmailed by a local gang and threatened to be shut down by the local councillor.
One fateful night of accidental vigilantism leads to a reinvigorated community that soon rallies around the Deadly Cuts’ bid to win.
Filmmaker Rachel Carey savagely satirizes toxic masculinity and class snobbery to create this campy, dark comedy of women’s empowerment.
