Speculating about the birth of Rock n’ Roll and the best curl pattern. This film explores Black queer identity and self acceptance as a pathway to personal utopia. Origin of Hair culls from Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s legacy as a Black queer woman in the 50s and 60s claiming power through musical invention and radical self-love.

Screening in the Weeping Toothcrust Shorts block.
