Carlotta’s schooldays were like an endless nightmarish labyrinth in search of the right classroom. It was her lonely fate to find it both disturbing and natural to look into the mirror and not be able to recognise her own face. This drawn animation by neuroscientist and filmmaker Valentin Riedl, animated and filmed by co-director Frédéric Schuld, shows how she managed to make her own face recognisable to herself despite a rare disease.
