‘willingly’ shaved: In a Savage Land

Anthropologist Evelyn Spence (Maya Stange) undergoes a tribal mourning ritual when her husband dies: her head is shaved; her body painted; and she goes to live in a cage.

Maya Stange in her first movie had her head shaved on-screen with what looked very like a sharpened butter-knife!.

Jennifer Lamphee was hair & makeup supervisor; Tina Gordon was hair & makeup artist.
