As a child, Carlotta didn’t expect the people around here to have faces. She even doesn’t recognise her own face. Years later, she learns about a rare, untreatable deficit of her brain. It was art, after all, that offered her a way to finally recognise herself.

Valentin Riedl is a physician and neuroscientist. For his endeavor to merge abstract science with the artistic form of film, Valentin won the 2016 Advancement Award of the
Sparkasse Cultural Foundation Rhineland by suggestion of Wim Wenders.
