The Hairdresser

La Coiffeuse

Directed by Lorraine Price

Kathleen is a hairdresser. Always has been. Always will be. Even at 83, she’s still doing hair. But not in the way you would expect. Kathleen’s work is special. For the last 31 years, she has done the hair of the terminally ill in palliative care. In this short, poetic documentary, Kathleen reflects on her experience while we bear witness to her unusual work.
