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. The trailer is below along with a synopsis.

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.
