This lightweight documentary, showing in Cleveland this one night only, promises to give us food for thought.. and discussion.
"While the film's title highlights red hair, it is about much, much more. Everyone should watch this film and reflect on what makes them 'ginger' in their own life."
BEING GINGER is a wonderful, illuminating look into the life of the film's maker, Scott P. Harris. At first the film seems to be a comedy about a red haired man trying to find love. But through revealing moments, whimsical animation, and real interviews, a universal story arises. We are all different. We all have aspects of our lives that set us apart from the crowd and greatly affect us. In Scott's case, it's his red hair. Through captivating storytelling, we journey with Scott as he lets the viewer into his thoughts, experiences, and internal processing of how his red hair has influence over his life and how it makes him feel about himself.
"The beauty of this 68 min. documentary is that it wasn't meant to be about bullying - but in a kind, honest, unjudgmental way, it teaches reams about it."
