The Girl With The Three-Minute Memory (Amnesia Documentary) | Real Stories [4k]

At 24 years old, Clair was diagnosed with Encephalitis, a rare and almost fatal brain condition. Clair suffers from Anterograde Amnesia meaning her memory ‘resets’ every three minutes.

This intimate short film explores Clair’s uplifting story as she defies the odds and forges new ways to navigate day-to-day life.

Memory is an important part of what makes us human. But what happens when you lose the ability to remember anything new?
