archival footage clearance issue

Hi all,

I'm a documentary filmmaker (first-time) and have some footage filmed by a friend of mine many years ago, which I hope to incorporate into my doc.

Question: What are the clearance rules for this? Specifically, if a person's face is used for a couple of seconds, no speaking, do I need to clear the use of their image?

Thanks for any help you can provide. If this post does not fall within the rules of this community, please feel free to redirect me.
