My Hero Brother Film Screening

A group of remarkable young people with Down syndrome embark on a demanding trek through the Indian Himalayas, accompanied by their brothers and sisters. Unresolved conflicts and the complexities of growing up with a Down syndrome child in the family come to surface, while a heart-warming and special closeness develops among the siblings, as they deal with formidable physical and emotional challenges. The difficult trials and poignant relationships, set against the richly colorful backdrop of India, open new horizons and greatly deepen our understanding of special needs individuals and their families.

Followed by a pre-recorded Q & A with Yonatan Nir, Israeli director, as well as a live presentation about personal experiences by Arielle Zellis.

Co-sponsored by The Friendship Circle, Abilis, Swim Angelfish and Sensational Achievements.
