There's nothing to be afraid of, It's just a little hair!

Distributed by Devolver Digital Films of Austin, TX.  Available on-line, through video-on-demand, and with limited theatrical engagements in Movember 2013. 


Journey into the souls of countrymen to experience the triumph and heartbreak of a world-class beard.  Share stories of everyday people whose lives are touched by extraordinary beards.  Celebrate inner strength and personal growth.  Man up.

Growing a beard is like making an indie film; it requires stubborn determination, delusion, ego, revulsion for society, a mother's patience, and confidence in the process.  Men with Beards is a character-driven film where the talking heads have serious beards and fierce opinions on identity and self-expression.  There are men, and there are men with beards.

Disclaimer:  This documentary was made possible without the help of government, industry associations, financial institutions, and organized crime.  Men with Beards is an independent film by Dylan Fries, Michael Sanders, and Electric Monk Media of Winnipeg, MB.
