Hair, Let the Sun Shine In (2007)
52min · Documentary · 24 July 2007
A look backwards, using contemporary interviews and archival footage, at "Hair" the musical, a theatrical and cultural phenomenon in the 1960s and 1970s. The documentary is arranged, loosely, around themes: the context of its creation, friendships among its creators, rehearsals, media coverage, race, sex, politics, backlash, several deaths, drug use leading to dissolution, and an assessment of the play's importance. The commentary comes from a dozen people looking back: creators, producers, actors, and directors of the play and film.
