Within the fall of 2005, two filmmakers invited six males throughout America to hitch them in an experiment. They might all cease shaving for six months. No trimming allowed. Every was offered a video digital camera and weekly interview inquiries to doc his personal expertise. The ensuing 600 hours of intimate footage revealed a gaggle of males traversing the identical ceremony of passage from disparate vantage factors. All through the method, the lads informed tales from their pasts, shared likes and dislikes, and confessed private fears and aspirations. They laughed and cried, hid and got here alive behind their beards. The tireless taping captured dangerous days and good ones, and it’s on this framework that the person tales stand out and the beards fade into the background. From a son coping with his father’s descent into Alzheimer’s, to monetary and marital struggles, to the start of a kid, THE WINTER OF THE BEARD reveals the trials and tribulations of what it means to drastically alter one’s look and in any other case go on dwelling life.
