“It’s Just Another Place”, a documentary film chronicling the lives of men and women, girls and boys living with Downs Syndrome in Lebanon.
Five persons and their families share their stories, their challenges, their successes, and their day-to-day life, in their own voices. They take us into their personal and private spaces to allow us to understand
just how alike we all are.
“… you must learn a whole new language. And you will meet a whole new group of people you would never have met. It’s just a different place. It’s slower paced than Italy, less flashy than Italy. But after you’ve been there for a while and you catch your breath, you look around. You begin to notice that Holland has windmills. Holland has tulips. And Holland even has Rembrandts … But if you spend your life mourning the fact that you didn’t get to Italy, you may never be free to enjoy the very special, the very lovely things about Holland.” - “A Trip to Holland” by Emily Perl Kingsley
