"Quite entertaining." - Robert Marvy, William Marvy Company, Inc.
ABOUT THE MOVIE
Frank Marchand provided a steadfast service of barbering in the town of Rochester, New Hampshire for over half a century. As a native, citizen and productive member of Rochester for more than 80 years, some would say that Frank Marchand was definitely a cut above. So when Frank tells his tales of buzz cuts and close shaves, he also tells the story of Rochesterís colorful past.
Born into a lineage of local
barbering, Frank perpetuated a family profession and business while enriching
the art of barbering with unmatched fervor for his work. Even Marchandís
Barbershop, which doubled as a used record store, reflected his unique and
Flicker Pictures aims to capture
that very spirit with the documentary of Frank the Barber. With hopes,
this project will increase awareness of the overlooked trade of barbering and
recognize the barber as a valued part of the community.
