“This is my father Graham Rowe, the last Barber in Broken Hill. I wanted to make a short film about him, because I think he is an important part of the history of Broken Hill. For 60 years he has been cutting hair, telling stories and having conversations. This film gives you a glimpse of who my father is, it’s not the whole story of course, I’d need to make a feature length film in order to tell his story so far. The isolation of an outback mining town breeds all sorts of eccentric and inspiring characters, all from a diverse range of ethnic backgrounds and the sense of community is intensely strong and vibrant. I’m proud to say that I was born there and extremely grateful for the friends and family back home who helped me make this personal film and document a little bit of Broken Hill history in the only way I know how……from my heart”.
