You Are in My Story

A documentary about a community for people with intellectual dissabilties 

Artist residence, documentary, 29 minutes,2023

Residents of a close-knit community for people with intellectual disabilities are given cameras to capture their daily lives in the community by themselves. The process that unfolds prompts the director, caretakers, and parents of the residents to rethink their preconceived notions and the expectations that they hold, for both the residents and for themselves. With each captured moment, a rich tapestry of heartfelt stories is revealed, intricately woven by the individuals themselves. Through their lens, we are invited into a world where vulnerability and resilience intertwine, where letting go fosters a deeper understanding of one another.
