‘Tying your own shoes’ by Shira Avni

 

Beautiful and sensitive mix of live action and animation. The link below is for the trailer and download for the film.

This short documentary is an intimate glimpse into the exceptional mindsets and emotional lives of four adult artists with Down Syndrome. An artful, four-way essay about ability, this animated film explores how it feels to be a little bit unusual.
