“You Are Hair” is the second in a series of live variety shows by Kseniya Yarosh & Eleanor Kagan, the hosts of the Brooklyn-based film podcast, Bonnie & Maude.
Join us for an evening of funny and insightful stories and presentations on the subject of female hair as seen in movies, television, and pop culture. We will untangle the trope of the fiery redhead, rediscover the true story of Rapunzel, strip away the portrayal of body hair in the film Human Nature, and root into how we see African-American hair on the big screen and beyond-cé. Plus, NPR’s Ophira Eisenberg will share with us the secrets of “Canadian hair” and some never-before-seen photos from her personal archives.
L.V. Anderson, Tessa Brown, Sophie Bushwick, Ophira Eisenberg, Aisha Harris, Allegra Oxborough, Cassie Wagler
