I am happy to announce that The Beard will screen in competition at this years annual Whistler Film Festival! The film will be screened as part of the Canadian Shortwork Competition, which recognizes the extraordinary talent, dynamism and creative exploration of some of Canada's most interesting filmmakers. Set in North America's premier mountain resort, the Whistler Film Festival, now celebrating its 12th anniversary, is an up-and-coming event that is quickly gaining international attention. The festival will present more than 80 films from across Canada and around the world.
Written and directed by Yaz Rabadi, The Beard tells the story of an elderly Sikh (Sam Moses) who has been victimized as a result of his racial appearance, and how he struggles to deal with his given circumstances in the aftermath of the violent attack.
