A Hairy Problem
To mow or to grow, have hair or be bare? This is the hairy problem that most women face at some point in their lives. Where is it okay to have hair follicles, what are the consequences for having hair in the ‘wrong’ place and why is it anyone else’s business what a woman does with her own hair?! A Hairy Problem offers a glimpse into the personal experiences of various women, their relationship to their hair and why some women are trying to embrace their hirsute self.
Produced, directed, shot and edited by Rebecca Thomson as part of the Screen Australia/WHIMN Doco 180 Initiative,
A Hairy Problem is a short documentary that has to date had more than 800 000 views online.
