La Rue de la Barbe. (The Street of Beards) Pete Codling. 2 minutes. Filmed on Avenue Habib Bourguiba Tunisia. 2012. A gesture of support, one year after the Arab Spring that started here. I went to meet artists on the front line of creativity in revolution. I met some amazing and brave people. Artists whose lives are threatened openly for making art. A man’s beard was seen as a political and fundamentalist religious/symbolic statement by locals but for me just a personal boho travelling style, a freedom, of the times. The film/performance was an attempt at exploring the shapes/politics of perception to facial hair, freedom, history and revolution, as I shaved it off in the high street in support of my brave new friends.
