‘Die Rothaarige’ Experimental Short Film

“Die Rothaarige” is the story of a trichotillomanic witch who has pulled out all of her hair in an anxious search for objects that will help her re-grow the locks she’s lost so ironically.
She sits in front of a basin of water and when she reaches in, her hands emerge in a surreal vignette to extract the objects that have the magical potential to fulfill her desire.
The film is based on red hair historically being seen as a symbol of mystery, hot temperament, and association with witches.
