Premiere Screening: "I AM MORE THAN MY HAIR"
New Film, Directed by Alyscia Cunningham, Tell the Stories of Women with Alopecia
By: AC Media
The screening of I Am More Than My Hair will be followed by a Q&A, a signing of Alyscia's companion photography book, and a reception. Meet the women who participated, hear about the medical aspect of alopecia from Dermatologist Dr. St. Surin-Lord, and join the discussion of redefining beauty standards.
"The film has been a four-year journey in the making," says Alyscia, who is based in Silver Spring. "Finally seeing it come into fruition feels like giving birth."
The film traces the connection between the beauty standards that young girls learn, and the journey of self-discovery taken by women who've experienced hair loss. "If you look to the outside world, the media, to define what's beautiful, I'm certainly not that," says Sheila Bridges, whose story is included in the film. Throughout the documentary, the women discuss how their perspectives on beauty have evolved as they found new models of beauty and questioned what they were taught as girls.
