About the Program

Join us for the Skirball’s first Social Good Salon. At this gathering, people of all backgrounds and ages learn about current events and socially relevant topics and then exchange ideas and opinions. At this salon, watch the Social Impact Media Award–winning documentary short Women in Sink (2015).

In the thirty-seven minute film, director Iris Zaki installs a camera over the sink in a hair salon owned by two Christian Arab women in Haifa, Israel. Zaki’s conversations with the clients—all while she shampoos their hair—paint a portrait of Arab and Jewish women and their views on politics, history, and love.

After the screening, participate in a facilitated small group discussion of the film’s themes, while enjoying coffee, tea, and cookies.
