Hairtales

Hairtales

ABC  |  November 30, 2009

Hair is one powerful collection of follicles. Throughout history, it has divided and united, led to self-imposed exile and raised others to god-like status. Hair is synonymous with iconic beauty, sexuality and stardom. But what does hair mean to the mere mortal? This is a film full of unlikely stories. There's Lance the ex-gothic Mortician; Esther the Canadian hair academic; Gilly the farm girl turned bikini waxer and Margaret the myopic hair artist to name a few. Hairtales is an anecdotal mix of eclectic memories, dreams lost and inner selves found.
