WOMEN OF THE LENS PRESENTS:
THE STRENGTH OF ACCEPTANCE
I Am More Than My Hair – directed by Alyscia Cunningham
From the time we are young, girls are pressured into a set belief of beauty standards. Hair is certainly high on the list and is often labeled as our ‘crown and glory.’ Where does this notion fit in for women with alopecia (the partial or complete absence of hair from areas of the body where it normally grows)? The documentary-style film features interviews with women who’ve experienced hair loss due to a health-related condition and their journey of self-empowerment to see beauty beyond.
The film is part of our Strength Of Acceptance Theme at 10.30 am, Sat 30th Apr. at Rich Mix 35/47 Bethnal Green Road, London
