Want an unvarnished window into the world of kids? Try cutting their hair

In the Dutch documentary series Talking Heads, the host and seasoned children’s hairdresser Marko Suds provides a window into the eclectic worlds of the eight- to 12-year-old kids who populate his salon chair. The far-reaching discussions span the challenges, passions and dreams of the diverse young patrons – all while the endearing Suds carefully observes their instructions for an ideal hairstyle. In this first episode of the series, Suds cuts and communes with Marijn, who ponders meeting his sperm donor father; Taysen, who’s tired after a night spent watching a television programme about criminal fugitives; Zhuan, who has Tourette’s syndrome; and Annemarie, whose beloved father has had a debilitating stroke.
