Carlotta’s Face

Animated short film

Frédéric SCHULD / Valentin RIEDL [Japan]


Carlotta, the central character of the story, has never been able to recognize people’s faces due to a brain disorder called prosopagnosia. She overcomes the hardship through art and draw- ing. Carlotta, who is now an artist, gives a narration to the lithograph-like animation which adopts the technique she uses. She does not recognize the face in the mirror, but, she strong- ly states that the portraits she draws are hers.
