The stop-motion short film 'Angry Beard' by director Adolfo Bueno visualizes the potent emotional turmoil inherent when someone is forced to retire their facial companion.
What begins as a young, shaggy man sitting down to a table quickly evolves into a skirmish between facial hair and toiletries. The star of Angry Beard is the man's overgrown stubble, which comes to life and shimmies its way onto the kitchen table. Following this initial animation, the shaving kit accessories also come to life in a manner that recalls The Brave Little Toaster.
Angry Beard continues to depict the massacre of the facial hair at the hands of the clippers, shaving cream and razor blade until the guilt-ridden brush fires its bristles and saves the beard, which proceeds to return to its owners face. Compelling, playful and impressively conducted, Angry Beard is a powerful testimonial towards a man's bond with his whiskers.
