My name is Kashif Boothe and In September 2016 I released a 3 Part documentary series on hair titled ‘What Is Good Hair?‘ What Is Good Hair? features black and mixed race women who choose to rock their natural hair. In this documentary they share their experiences, the misconceptions and whether women who wear weaves, relax or straighten their hair are conforming to european standards. The purpose of this documentary is to show that there is no such thing as good or bad hair.
Why is natural afro hair and curly hair so political?

Misconceptions & European Standards
I produce short films, web series’ and documentaries under my production company Kashif Boothe Entertainment. In the last three years I have produced two short films entitled Orioh and Being, both films have been featured at The Portobello Film Festival in 2014 and on blogs in the UK, US and Ghana. In August 2015, I began producing a documentary series on relationships, the first episode ‘What Do Guys Think of Relationships?’ was selected for the 2016 Ozark Shorts Film Festival. In December 2015 I released the second episode ‘What Do Women Think of Relationships?’ and in February the third episode ‘What Do Gay Men and Lesbian Women Think of Relationships?’ which was featured on towleroad.com and the documentary series was selected as the editors top pick on hiive.co.uk w/c March 7th 2016. In March 2016 I completed a documentary entitled ‘Being Light Skinned’ within Black and Asian cultures, it was screened at the event forum ‘Afrocentrikal’ and featured various websites including ClutchMatchmagazine.com, trueafrica.com and on hiive.co.uk as the editors top pick w/c May 2nd 2016. In May I released the first episode of my web series ‘Nate & Jamie’. In September 2016 I released my doc series ‘What Is Good Hair?’ and was screened at the Voices of Colour event in November 2016.
In March 2016 I released a documentary entitled ‘Being light Skinned‘ within Black and Asian Cultures and I think it will be of interest to you and your websites audience.
Being Light Skinned features men and women from Black and Asian cultures discussing the misconceptions of being light skin. There is a arguably a general view within Black and Asian cultures that light skin men and women think they are better than dark skinned people and they are more successful as actors, musicians because they appeal to a mainstream audience and they have ‘good hair‘. In this documentary it challenges this perception and also enlightens audiences on the challenges they face being light skin, their opinion on the light skin vs dark skin debate within Black, Latin and Asian cultures and on why they think skin bleaching is popular.

This web series will be of interest to your websites audience as it is a young adult of the 90s sitcom Kenan & Kel.
