Dir. Guida Bilbao69 min, Panama, DocumentaryNY PREMIERE
The story of a group of young actors who dare to mount La Cucarachita Mandinga, a classic Panamanian play. The actors, who have Down syndrome, lack prior stage experience, but plan to put on the first inclusive play ever staged in Central America. We follow them as they work together to memorize lines, learn choreography, and challenge the public. This documentary explores the artistic process as well as these young people's intimate world: their fears, their hopes, and their daily struggle for the adventure of their lives.
