Memory Games

Janet Tobias & Claus Wehlisch (2018)

Memory Games follows memory-athletes from Germany, Sweden and the United States on their way to a world-championship. Through the use of animation, we experience how the geniuses use unique visualisation techniques to memorise incredible volumes of data. Making the impossible real before our very own eyes, Memory Games tells a passionate story why memory makes us human.
