Baby Let Your Hair Hang Down is a feature-length (72 mins) documentary that follows one girl on her journey from discovery to acceptance of her autoimmune disease/condition – Alopecia Areata (immune-related hair loss.) Before she had the condition, Georgia worked as a hair model, actress, and comedian and relied heavily on her appearance. When she lost her hair, she was forced to completely reassess the career and life she had chosen for herself. We watch her as she grapples with this huge decision. We go with her from doctor to doctor, trying to find a cure, which she soon discovers doesn’t exist.
We cry and laugh with her as she comes to terms with the fact that her only choice is acceptance. Once she makes this choice, her world turns into the world she had always hoped for – one of sharing, giving back, and filled with amazing children. At the end of the film, Georgia realizes that whether she has hair or not doesn’t really matter at all. The difference she can make in other people’s lives by being loud and proud about her Alopecia Areata is a bigger gift than anything she could ever hope for.
Although this is a documentary about a medical condition – there is very little about this film that is like a standard medical documentary. It is full of comedy and lightness, and Georgia’s approach to her condition prevents the audience from taking it, or her, too seriously. The film features appearances by Alopecians of all ages, a number of comedians, two doctors who work with alopecia areata every day of their lives, a wig maker, and a stylist, Georgia’s family and friends, and even a puppet who has alopecia areata.
Georgia is fortunate enough to come from a very talented family. Her brother was the Director of Photography on the Melbourne unit of the film. Her cousin James wrote and performed four of the film’s songs, and her other cousin Nick did all of the original composition and sound mixing. Besides her family members, Georgia worked with a number of very talented friends to make this documentary a reality.
This film would not have been possible, however, if it wasn’t for all of the altruistic supporters. The post-production of the film was made possible solely by community donations.
