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.
