Sony Pictures Animation has released Matthew A. Cherry’s short film, Hair Love.
The film was shown in theaters earlier this year ahead of The Angry Birds Movie 2. The official description of the film notes that it “tells the heartfelt story of an African American father learning to do his daughter’s hair for the first time.”
“It was important to get this story out there and we are so grateful to Sony Pictures Animation for their generous support in helping us make that happen,” said Cherry in an earlier statement. “They have championed it from its early stages and we cannot wait to share the project with the world.”
