Up and Down

In the City of Buenos Aires, once a week students from the Juan Laso’s drama school attend classes. The group, “No Drama Down” is composed entirely of people with Down syndrome. The challenge of the group is to shoot a short film of about 20 minutes, whose script comes from issues and conflicts that arise within the group.

Juan says of his students: “They are actors who open their hearts and work from a place of intense love. After classes and rehearsals I fall in love with life.”
