‘The Moustache Dispute’ is a Short film featuring an excerpt from a story of the same name by the Uyghur writer Memtimin Hoshur. A 20 minute shot from the train window shows Xinjiang's landscape turning from morning, to day and then night, whilst Akyar reads the passage from Hoshur's story set in the same region.

The film is shown at the Steppen and Seidenstrassen exhibition at the MARKK Hamburg.
