Aphasia is a non-narrative short film that illustrates the language and speech disorders brought on by brain degeneration in people with Alzheimer’s disease. The film aims to reproduce the experience of aphasia for the audience. To that end, language dysfunction is represented by the changes in a portrait affected by audio and visual interferences, until it becomes completely unrecognizable.
