In a playfully biographical manner, Anka Schmid recounts her generation’s hairy stories. Whether as a body ornament, political statement or even in the soup, hair is omnipresent – even when shaven. With an ingenious montage of real-life and archive footage as well as stop-motion technique, the animadoc interweaves enlightening and surprising associations – the tremendous potential of the body’s wispiest part is discovered in daily life and in art. HAIRY is a sensual exploration of the body hair, provoking much thought and a few chuckles about one’s own head of magnificent hair. A tingling feeling on the head is included.
