We are delighted to announce that Simon Ball’s beautiful short animation ‘Do I see what you see’, developed with Created Out of Mind researchers, has been selected for the London International Animation Festival (LIAF) 2018, as part of their International Competition Programme!

The film was one of 117 new films selected from over 2.600 entries from every corner of the world, as part of LIAF’s annual window into the international indie animation universe.

‘Do I see what you see’ joins films that document truth in new visual, engaging and compelling ways.

The film encompasses a series of powerful animations, narrated by people living with a rare type of dementia called Posterior Cortical Atrophy (PCA), which affects their visual processing and perception. They and their loved ones document their unique and personal experiences, challenges and stories, and challenge each of us to confront how we perceive the world around us.

We join a programme of true life stories including the Velvet Underground’s disastrous first public performance, people trying to make sense of Brexit, some serious musings on overcoming anorexia, and many other powerful tales. There will be an onstage discussion with several of the filmmakers after the screening.
