We call them gingers, redheads, and/or fire crotches and I often think of them as forbidden fruit, fun to look at but hard to attain. “Gingers” collects samples of their testimonials and their body hair, skin and sperm. They are different genetically and a double minority. We all want them but only a few can actually have them.
This is a love letter to ginger men everywhere and is an intimate, sexy, almost naughty look at the lives, experiences and bodies of a group of ginger guys, from their schoolyard bullying to their sexual awakening and beyond. I see this short film as an intimate treat with a naughty ending.
“Even if you’re not a fan of redheads, the first half of the film offers an interesting insight into the lives of those who, as children, were bullied for their appearance and are, in later life, finding the table have turned and what once made them outcast now offers exciting advantages in the worlds of love and sex.”
