The Story

Director Jillian Corsie grew up with a friend who kept their trichotillomania hidden for a year. As a result, Jillian is using her love of filmmaking as a tool to raise awareness about a community she cares deeply for.

Trichster unfolds through those who live with trichotillomania, showing the very real day to day affects the disorder can have on people and what it is like to live with varying degrees of it. While the film  highlights an often embarassing and isolating disorder, it ultimately acts as a tool of inspiration and hope, showing the prevelance of trichotillomania and why it is important to understand.
