Video Page: Moustaches Unlimited

A moustache is a peculiar thing – it can come in varied shapes and sizes, loaded with equally varied meanings and connotations. Is a moustache synonymous with the socially established understanding of what makes a ‘man’, is it what marks the degree of manliness, or rather, the degree of male privilege, and is it something that defines the kind of relationships men share with each other? Or, do moustaches transcend gender, holding different meanings for men, women, and people who identify as neither, becoming symbols of empowerment or aesthetic achievement? Vasudha Joshi’s film Moustaches Unlimited seeks to answer these questions by exploring the relationships various people have with their moustache (or lack thereof).
