A Special ReelAbilities Preview
Dir. Maite Alberdi (Chile/The Netherlands/France, 2016, 82 min.)
For most of their lives, a group of classmates have grown up together and are approaching 50 with varying degrees of frustration. The school they attend for people with Down Syndrome feels confining and they long for new challenges, greater independence, and more personal space. Director Maite Alberdi’s observational warm and compassionate film features a mixture of heartache and humor, and hope for greater understanding of people with Down Syndrome, or anyone whose perceptions and abilities are different from the norm.
“The longer we spend in the company of these people, the clearer it seems that they should be treated on a case-by-case basis.” - Variety
