The Colour of His Hair

16mm, digital transfer, 23 mins

Based on an unrealized film script written in 1964 for The Homosexual Law Reform Society, a British organisation that campaigned for the decriminalization of homosexual relations between men, The Colour Of His Hair merges drama and documentary into a meditation on queer life before and after the partial legalization of homosexuality in 1967.
