Prosopagnosia

Prosopgnosia is a short animated documentary about my own experiences with face-blindness. I directed and animated the personal film with support from the Scottish Documentary Institute. Prosopagnosia had its Premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2021 and has also screened online as part of the New York Times Op-Docs series.

Synopsis – Prosopagnosia is a story of identity that uses expressive animation to investigate intimacy, communication and memory.
Prosopagnosia is face-blindness and as a means of understanding this neurodiverse behaviour, the contents of a memory box are explored. Sketchbooks, photographs and diaries are intricately unraveled to tell a unique and personal story.
