Carlotta’s Face

Animated short film

Frédéric SCHULD / Valentin RIEDL [Germany]

© 2018 Fabian&Fred


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 drawing. 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 strongly states that the portraits she draws are hers.
