BELFAST — The Midcoast Maine premiere of the documentary film “Mop Cap: An Alopecia Story” is on Sunday, June 23, from 5:15 to 7:15 p.m. at the Colonial Theater, 163 High St.

The film is about one woman’s experience with the autoimmune condition alopecia, which causes patchy hair loss and baldness. Director Nicolle Littrell tells Ann Hedly’s lifelong story of how this condition has created conflict and creativity in her life and how self-love is the key to lasting acceptance. The film explores universal themes of femininity, beauty, personal loss and transformation.

Following the film, there will be a discussion with Hedly and Littrell. Tickets are $10. For more information, please find “Mop Cap Film Premiere” on Facebook.
