I Am More Than My Hair – Trailer

Alyscia Cunningham

If you look towards the media to define what’s beautiful, baldness is not a look that is considered attractive. ‘I Am More Than My Hair’ is a documentary film that includes interviews with females who have experienced hair loss (alopecia) and explores the relationship between their emotions and the media’s portrayal of beauty standards.

Alyscia Cunningham, Director of “I Am More Than My Hair”, introduces the fundraiser for her film. Your donation can support two causes: 1. The final cut of my film, exhibition, and screening presentations. 2. Making it accessible for people with visual and hearing disabilities.
