India Film Tells 7 Inspiring Stories of People With Down Syndrome

With the 11th World Down Syndrome Congress going on next week in Cape Town, South Africa, the Down’s Syndrome Federation of India plans to show a sneak peek of an upcoming feature-length documentary it commissioned that tells the inspirational stories of seven people in India with Down syndrome.

It’s wonderful to see a documentary that focuses on how loving these kids are with their families as well as their accomplishments. One person featured won a gold medal in cycling in the Special Olympics, while another dazzles with her dancing. They are people who love yoga, dancing, playing the piano, and spending time with their loved ones. This is not a movie about the problems associated with a medical condition; this is a movie about seven people, their families and how they all shine.

The film, by CurleyStreet Media, is scheduled to be released in October. Anyone who is following Down syndrome should take a look at this short film and keep an eye out for the full feature.

The Global Down Syndrome Foundation will talk a lot more about the World Down Syndrome Congress in the next week. The Foundation’s Director of Operations and Government Affairs, Michelle Livingston, will be in South Africa and provide updates. Stay tuned.
