Synopsis

Shot on a Bolex camera, this short film was designed to show the evolution of the once butch and dyke filmmaker's beard growing over a period of 21-day in the early 1990s. The video deals with the shame felt by the filmmaker as they were transitioning and gives a voice to the transgender community. Audrey's Beard follows the theme of transgenderism explored by the artist in their Pussyboy Trilogy and was named one of the ten best Trans films by the feminist magazine Curve in 2006.
