Fifteen million Americans suffer from a disorder that most have never heard of. Trichotillomania is a body focused repetitive behavioral disorder that causes sufferers to pull out their hair. Trichster follows seven individuals over one year, documenting their daily challenges as they each determine how their hair pulling defines them. This film aims to normalize this often-misunderstood disorder by presenting the perspective of the people who live with it every day.
Trichster is currently in post-production, with an anticipated festival release in spring 2014.
