Prosopagnosia at SQIFF 2021

My short animated documentary Prosopagnosia will be screening at the Scottish Queer International Film Festival 2021 on Saturday 9 October in Glasgow. This is one of my favourite festivals and my previous film Dix Pix screened in 2019. This is also the first in person screening of Prosopagnosia.

I will also be talking at the Documentary Workshop on Sunday 9 October. Here I will present some ideas about identity in creative documentary and I will talk about making Prosopagnosia.

New Short Film ‘Prosopagnosia’

For the past few months I have been working on a new short animated documentary with the Scottish Documentary Institute. The title is Prosopagnosia and will have its Premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival this weekend. The trailer is below along with a synopsis.

Prosopagnosia – Trailer from Steven Fraser on Vimeo.

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.
