Short Film: Prosopagnosia

Prosopagnosia is a cognitive disorder that prevents a person from being able to recognize faces.  In this short film, the only witness to a murdered is the victim's best friend, who suffers from prosopagnosia.

What makes "Prosopagnosia" a good film is that it's not science fiction film, but rather, a great use of medical science to create a mystery.  The resulting story is entertainingly drama, but of course, not everything is as it seems.
"Alfred finds his best friend dead in her apartment and looks the perpetrator right in the eyes. Too bad he can’t recognize anyone’s face.

Alfred suffers from a condition called Prosopagnosia, more often called Face Blindness, what implies he is unable to recognize or remember anyone's face, not even his own. On the other end of the table in a dark interrogation room sits inspector Peck. He is in charge of investigating the puzzling murder of Alfred's best friend."
