About the film (trailer to be released in coming weeks): The inspirational documentary Moving Bodies Moving Boundaries was created in partnership with acclaimed Indian director, Onir Anticlock and Donald Percy. With India providing a spectacular backdrop, the documentary follows the lives of six young people with Down syndrome and their families, as participants from India and Australia meet at the World Down Syndrome Congress in Chennai, India.
It embraces the beauty and similarities of two vastly different cultures coming together for the same purpose.
This film is an honest portrayal; it is moving, provocative, inspiring, humorous and challenging. We are reminded how much we are all alike in the core of our being.
The aim of the documentary: Through the personal stories of families living with Down syndrome in both India and Australia we aim for this film to challenge stereotypes and perceptions of Down syndrome and create change.
The film is intended to appeal to the general population, emotionally engage the viewer and take them on a personal journey of growth as they experience, through the film, the uniqueness and universality of humans, why we should embrace difference and why we should all belong.
Our aim is for mass distribution of the film in India, Australia and beyond.
