- No Hair Day: A Viewpoint Presentation
- Program Description
In March of 1998, three bald women came to the Cambridge studio of photographer Elsa Dorfman for a portrait session. The women - ﬁlmmaker Deborah Dorsey, artist and teacher Carol Potoff and Libby Levinson, an executive assistant at a publishing ﬁrm - had met in a breast cancer support group; each had lost her hair to chemotherapy. A ﬁlm crew led by Dorsey's husband and business partner, Bob Burns, captured the session's hilarity and gravity, poignancy and ﬁerce friendships, as well as the women's reﬂections on ﬁghting breast cancer.
