ABOUT 'THE FACE OF A STRANGER'

Best Film French (English subtitles). Directed by Geneviève Turcotte Produced by Découverte, Radio-Canada. Written by Danny Lemieux.

After a 2011 hunting accident, this Quebec man thought he’d live forever with half a face. Then a confident young surgeon made an extraordinary offer. Face of Stranger takes us on a medical journey of epic proportions – where the odds of success are less than ideal. That didn’t bother the prospective patient, 65-year-old Maurice Desjardins, who desperately needed a facial transplant operation.

Jury comment: Story telling at its best with layers of brilliant cinematography, amazing human connections; emotionally charged and totally engaging

Run time: 50 minutes.
