A Muslim, a Sikh, a world champion… How does having a beard affect our perception of ourself and the people around us? What compels those who have beards to stand by their facial foliage? In an age when the beard is at once more trendy and more controversial than ever ‘The Secret Life of Beards’ explores man’s most evocative and distinctive facial feature. Challenging documentary’s traditional mode, the film incorporates performance, stunning visual imagery, and original music.
