Film Synopsis

Spike Lee's graduate school thesis film (which he worked on while interning at First Run!) centers on a young man named Zack (Monty Ross), who takes over as the manager of a Brooklyn barbershop after the former owner, Joe (Horace Long), is killed by local gangster Mr. Lovejoy (Tommy Hicks) for trying to skim money from the numbers racket he runs out of the store. Zack wants to legitimize the barbershop, but, when business slows down and Mr. Lovejoy comes calling, he's tempted to follow down the same path as his predecessor.

Joe's Bed-Stuy Barbershop: We Cut Heads was the first student film to be showcased in Lincoln Center's New Directors/New Films Festival, and it also won a 1983 Student Academy Award.
