Contributions needed to help complete film

26th August 2010

Joaquin Perles of Perles Films is Spanish producer co-producing a documentary about Georgia Van Cuylenberg, a young Australian Comedian who currently lives in Hollywood California, with two independent production companies in USA.

"In 2007 Georgia suddenly lost all of her hair and was diagnosed with alopecia areata.  Rather than hiding away, choosing an easier career and giving in to her disorder Georgia decided to go loud and proud. She allowed cameras into her daily life to experience what it is like to be a woman, especially one who relies on her appearance to make a living, and to loose one’s hair. She shared her tears, her pain and her triumphs. And she put them all together into one film to show the world how she learned that life is not about the hair on your head, it is about the lessons you learn the friends you find and the difference you can make.

Now that we have all of our footage we need to edit it together. We want our quality of post-production to duly represent the phenomenal work of our cast and crew.

So we are turning to the alopecia community, friends, fans, anyone that understands what it is like to look in the mirror and not recognize what you see, and those who want to help make a difference to millions of people lives.

See more information about our film including the trailer, links to our twitter and facebook pages and details on how you can help to contribute to the completion of the film.

Thank you in advance for your attention and your help.

Yours sincerely

Joaquin Perles"
