Local Spotlight: Chester Makes

Local production company Upland Film Co. recently produced this documentary short about Brennon Jones, a barber from Chester who donates his time by giving free haircuts to Philadelphians who can’t afford one. It’s a great piece from director David Dominguez that captures the intimacy of Jones’ actions, and how it connects him to our community.
