Split Ends

Split Ends is the story of Nepali migrants in Europe. Somehow, they ended up in Lisbon in their quest of the European dream and, over time, have become regular customers at a salon owned by a Nepalese man. As loose ends of hair are trimmed away, their stories too unravel. An ordinary barbershop is thus transformed into a refuge where experiences are shared and advice is sought and given.

Rajan Kathet, born 1988 in Nepal, is a filmmaker who has written and directed national and international award winning films. He has just graduated from his Joint Masters in Documentary Film Direction at DOCNOMADS (Portugal, Hungary and Belgium) 2014-16, with the support of an Erasmus Plus Scholarship.
