Matt Walker, an actor and filmmaker in Sydney and Los Angeles, has an older brother who has Fragile X.
He is directing a feature length documentary called We Happy Few. The film is about "giving a deeply personal insight into the intellectually disabled community in today's fast paced world – filled
with inspiring first-hand accounts of achievements (against all odds)
and frank discussions on the struggles facing this community today and
into the future."
A couple of quotes from the trailer: "At the end of the day there are over 650 million people around the world - and the number is growing every single day - with
people with disabilities globally that deserve to have their stories told
accurately, fairly, realistically, and whenever possible, told by a
person with a disability."
And this one from Gail Williamson (director of Down Syndrome In Arts And Media) “There is a lack of availability of images, and the more images that are put out there the more acceptance overall in our world.”
Just watching this short, almost-six-minutes trailer leaves me wanting to see more; to see the rest of the story. I hope Matt is able to see his vision through to the full documentary.
