I'm thrilled and beyond excited to be speaking with Manjinder Singh from AM770's WTOR 'Voice of Sikhs' radio program today! We'll be discussing The Beard and CBC's Short Film Face Off on the radio show just past 11 AM. Tune in for some discussion and more details on the competition! Should be a fun outing - my first time on radio to boot! And don't forget that voting is still open till Sunday, September 1, 8 PM EST! During that time, you can vote for The Beard by visiting http://shortfilmfaceoff.isivote.com or by calling 1-877-876-3636.
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.
