What is it like to be faceblind?

Valentin Riedl joined with Frédéric Schuld, an animation artist, to create the animated short documentary CARLOTTA'S FACE. The film illustrates how face blindness, a deficit of the brain, affected the childhood of Carlotta and how she finally turned her deficit into exceptional art.

This short doc is a prequel to a feature-length documentary (LOST IN FACE) currently in production (see below).
