Until We Have Faces is a poetic documentary that takes the audience on a cinematic journey of the spiritual and corporeal identities of women facing life in prison in Pennsylvania. Rather than gazing in on these women that have been labeled violent offenders, the film creates an intimate portrait of their inner lives by exploring their perspectives, experiences, hopes, and dreams.

Producers: Dr. Kathryn Whiteley, associate professor of criminal justice, and Nathan Skulstad
