Synopsis

Apemen, Barbie dolls, and hairy shoes ... as this doco demonstrates, hair turns up everywhere (or not, as one man's poignant and matter-of-fact testimony to the horrors of losing it demonstrates). Hair's co-director, Auckland artist Judy Darragh, uses her fascination with all-things hirsute as a springboard for wit, thought-provoking theories, and some unusual artwork. She also phones Welsh author Elaine Morgan, who believes our ancestors lost much of their hair thanks to a semi-aquatic past. Producer Fiona Copland joins Darragh as co-director.

Quotes

I think we’re all obsessed with our hair - the daily ritualised pruning that we do, and the way in which we spend a lot of our time putting hair on, or ripping it off.  
This child will grow 37 feet of hair in her lifetime. She’ll spend 55,000 dollars cleaning, cutting, conditioning and removing it. And chances are, she still won’t be happy with it.
