Synopsis


Leave a life. Blow everything up.


Or better still: leave empty chairs at the tables you once shared with friends.


What few people understand is that you leave one life to start another.


In Mexico City, a mother begins writing her novel.

She is constantly interrupted.

In New York, a woman is haunted by the ghost of a Mexican poet.

She can't keep out the past.

100 years earlier, a poet is troubled by visions of a woman on the subway.

She lives decades in the future.


As a mother tries to remember the faces from her past, the lines between her and them blur, time folds in on itself and ghosts appear everywhere.


Based on Valeria Luiselli's award winning, internationally-acclaimed novel, Faces in the Crowd beautifully intertwines three narratives in unexpected ways.


Pushing the boundaries of storytelling, this dizzying, fluid and haunting adaptation explores whether our identities are more permeable than we imagine.
