stronglove Documentary of a Strong Love

I wanted to let you know about Strong Love, a new film a woman named Bonnie Burt produced about a couple both born with Down syndrome who decide to marry. I thought it might be of interest to all of you. I thought it was particularly appropriate given that yesterday was World Down Syndrome Day.

A recent review from the Down Syndrome News:
“Some scenes will make you cry, others will make you laugh. All in all, it’s a picture of life full of surprises, challenges and joy.”

Bonnie has posted a short excerpt from the film of Holly and Jon practicing their wedding vows if you are interested in previewing it. Click here to view it on YouTube.

From the website:

Strong Love is the story of world-class weight lifter Jon Shapiro and his childhood sweetheart Holly James, both of whom were born with Down syndrome. This documentary follows the couple over the course of three years, starting with their decision to get married. Their challenges, their triumphs, and their complex, sometimes surprising relationships with family and friends are at the heart of this inspiring film.

“Strong Love” is next scheduled to play at the Sprout Film Festival in NYC on Saturday May 10, 2008, at 11 am. Click here for more information about this screening.
