Henry's Hair: All at once your life changes forever
A new documentary film made in Portland features the music of Terry Robb and other legendary Portland musicians Linda Hornbuckle and Janice Scroggins. "Henry's Hair," a true coming-of-age story, follows a young Henry McCrae as he grapples with the grief of losing his mother to cancer, vowing to do what he can to help others touched by the dreadful disease. Surrounded by family, classmates and teachers, 13-year-old Henry grows out his red, curly hair and donates it to the nonprofit organization Locks of Love. But this would not be Henry's last encounter with a terminal diagnosis. A decade later, he faces yet another unimaginable challenge.
"Henry's Hair" is eligible for submission to film festivals across the country. To raise funds for the festival submission fees, the film was shown in its first screening on Friday, April 27 to wide appeal from a sold-out audience at the Mission Theater in Portland. A subsequent screening was held on May 18 in Manzanita, Oregon at the Hoffman Center for the Arts.
