5 New Yorkers  - 5 Years - 14 Hairstyles

What YOU Can Do

What we have tried to create, with 'do, is a film that speaks to many people, and about much more than their hair. Because hair is both universal and entirely individual, I think the film invites us to laugh at the quirks and conceits that make us all human while considering what makes each of us unique. I hope that the film will also encourage discussion about what it means for individuals to create an identity in our culture and the challenges we face in trying to build a diverse society in which each individual can do so without feeling trapped by expectations and stereotypes telling them how they should look and who they should be.

Now, we need your help! Here are some of the things you can do to help us get the film out there.

1) Donate
    'do is currently seeking funding to pay for post-production, promotion and festival distribution. No amount is too small. Donations can be made through our fiscal sponsor, the Brooklyn Arts Council, and are tax-free.

2) Attend
    …our fundraiser, a night of fun, refreshments, music and unique hairstyles, which will include a screening of our trailer and a raffle with a variety of prizes.

3) Become a Corporate Sponsor
    …for our October fundraiser by donating goods, services, or funding like our friends below.

4) Contact Us
    …to find out about having a screening of 'do in your community, if you'd like to help get the word out, or just want to find out more about the project.
