Winner of the Golden Eye Award at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival and nominated for the Best Documentary Feature award at this year’s Academy Awards, Faces Places is a deeply charming and life-affirming look at not only the subtle power of community, but the inspiration that can emerge from the most unexpected of friendships.
