Synopsis

Prosopagnosia uses expressive animation to investigate intimacy, communication and memory.

 

Prosopagnosia means face-blindness and to understand this neurodiverse behaviour, the contents of a memory box are intricately explored.

 

Sketchbooks, photographs and diaries unravel to tell a unique and personal story.

The Project

This film was directed, edited and animated by Steven Fraser.

It deals with Steven's own experience with face blindness.

Watch the film via the OP DOCS site of the New York Times.
