FILM OVERVIEW

Go behind the scenes with us at the film premiere here!

It’s often said that there is only one race—the human race.
Yet, incorporated within that race are many variations on a theme, and as long as diversity is a cornerstone of freedom and acceptance, there is no standard for ‘normal’.

Nearly all of us have encountered a child or young adult with Down syndrome. Whether we strive to understand or uncomfortably look away, the obvious physical and behavioral differences between them and children without a learning disability often translates into a genuine misunderstanding of their lives as individuals.

Thanks to films like The Peanut Butter Falcon, we have begun to understand that someone with Down syndrome can flourish, but this doesn’t stop us from feeling sympathetic for parents we believe face daily obstacles with their children with Down syndrome.

What is life really like for children with Down syndrome? How is their family affected on a day-to-day—even an hour-to- hour—basis? What opportunities are available to them, and most importantly, how can they assimilate in the work force and become independent?

In a new documentary film by director/producer, Keith Famie and Visionalist Entertainment Productions, we will take a touching and inspirational journey through the daily lives of children and young adults with Down syndrome and their families. We will watch as they grow and thrive in a misguided world, and we will learn how love translates into ambassadorship for this genetic anomaly.

Be prepared to weep at the struggles and rejoice at the triumphs of this unique sector of our community in a special Detroit Public Television/PBS special coming soon.
