La Chute

La Chute is a short, animated essay about the social capital of hair, and probes the taboos surrounding female hair loss in a patriarchal, capitalist society that sustains its power largely through body norms held up by the beauty industry.

The film is told from the perspective of my personal experience with alopecia.
