Based on the writer/director’s own experience while attending E.B. Stanley Middle School in Virginia, Permanent is a coming of age story about an idiosyncratic family set in 1983. Thirteen-year-old Aurelie faces the plight of how to fit in while encountering bullies at a new school. Meanwhile, her parents obsess over hair as they yearn for confidence and artistic drive. The comedy’s misadventures involve adolescence, poorly made toupees, and social awkwardness. Hairstyles are temporary, but family is forever. This film from UVA alumna Colette Burson premiered at the Austin Film Festival. Discussion with writer-director Colette Burson and actor Kira McLean, moderated by Harry Chotiner
