MOVIE HISTORY – 4 DECADES AFTER IT WAS MADE, “HAIR”, HAS BEEN RE-COLOURED & RESTORED

BLOUIN Art Info – “maybe four decades have gone by, but “Hair”, the movie seems to be a story as fresh as it was when first released. The 1979 anti-war drama film was based on the 1968 Broadway musical “Hair: An American Tribal Love-Rock Musical”.

“HAIR”, live onstage until February 2/2019 – at the Hart House Theatre, University of TORONTO. The original rock musical celebrates its 50th anniversary at a time of new-found social justice movements and civil unrest.

When a tribe of freedom-loving hippies is confronted with the realities of war and an oppressive government hell-bent on conflict, they become even more committed to their ideals of freedom, liberty from social shackles and the space to form individual expression…through “long, beautiful Hair”
