BIG RED: Being Ginger's auteur, Scott P. Harris takes us through the sorrows and ultimate triumphs of being a redhead.
Movie lovers/sociologists/redhead enthusiasts will want to set aside Tuesday, June 3, for the Florida premiere screening of Being Ginger,
an illuminating documentary about one redhead man's search to find love in the world as an oppressed minority (for anyone unsure about the legitimacy of this claim, Google the word "gingervitis"). The film has a local connection we cannot revieal. Read an interview with the director here.
It also has some shocking POV on the intense hatred some people have against ginger men, particularly in the realms of sexual attractiveness (there is an extended interview in the film where Harris receives a verbal lashing from a seemingly educated young woman that is beyond description) and dispels any disbelief that a bigotry surrounding gingers does not exist.
The film, directed and starring Scott P. Harris, will be screened at the Muvico Centro Ybor 20 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. and will include a Q&A with Scott after the show. The tickets are $15 and are available at tugg.com/events/8269
