Alexia Anastasio is making a documentary about redheads. The young, ambitious redhead contacted DocumentaryStorm.com and asked if we would send out the word that she is looking for sponsors to pledge money and help her complete her film.
From the footage that I’ve seen, Ginger Girls treats redheads as a race – or, at the very least, an endangered minority living among us. “Ginger,” according to Alexia is often used as a derogatory term for describing a person with red colored hair. The film sets out to reclaim the term in much the same way as the “N” word has been appropriated by many African Americans. Of course, this comparison would be laughable – if not highly insulting – except that “Ginger Girls” does not take itself too seriously. This is a fun, tongue in cheek documentary.
The documentary agrees with many of the stereotypes: redheads are hot tempered and seek attention.
Please take a look at the footage below and decide for yourself if you want to support this film and help it get completed.
