Lost in Face

A hybrid-documentary film by Valentin Riedl - 2020
One out of a hundred people worldwide can't recognize familiar faces. Nevertheless, we walk down the street expecting everyone else to see the world through our lens. This hybrid film by neuroscientist Valentin Riedl introduces you to Carlotta's world where faces do not exist.
As a neuroscientist and filmartist, Valentin merges abstract science with the artistic form of film to open a new world to the spectator”
Wim Wenders
