In the run up to World Down Syndrome Day on March 21st, the Down Syndrome Research Foundation UK and Don't Screen Us Out present two screenings of the "poignant and beautifully acted" My Feral Heart.
The film features, as the BBC's Mark Kermode described him, the "absolutely terrific" Steven Brandon, who has Down Syndrome, in the lead role.
The film explores many of the contemporary issues faced by people with Down Syndrome, and concludes on a note that rightly insists it's the task of the audience to decide whether these issues worsen or alleviate in the future, making the BIFA-nominated drama the perfect filmic accompaniment to World Down Syndrome Day, which was founded to advocate for the awareness, rights, inclusion, and wellbeing of people with the syndrome.
