Shahram Golchin is a professional film actor from pre-revolution Iran who was trapped between worlds in the prime of his career. Debilitated by a range of illnesses and a strong sense of exile, he is our window to the other characters of this film. Faces is an experimental documentary exploring the life and work of diasporic artists as they represent themselves through their art and stories. This multi-layered documentary reflects on politics, pop-culture, history and the power of popular media.
