Up Syndrome

I was surfing Youtube, watching cute videos of babies and kids with Down Syndrome, and came across a video called Up Syndrome. There are two parts, both are roughly 10 mins long. If you have time please take a look. You will be pleasantly surprised. Part 1 Part 2

Here is the write up from Youtube.

UP SYNDROME won the Grand Prize at director Kevin "Clerks" Smith's Movies Askew contest in 2006 and screened at the Slamdance Film Festival 2001. This is a shortened version of a longer 82-minute film titled UP SYNDROME, which is a multi-award-winning documentary that has garnered international acclaim as one of the most honest portrayals of Down's Syndrome ever committed to film. Synopsis: "University of Texas student Duane Graves chronicles his charismatic childhood chum Rene Moreno, a San Antonio native with Down Syndrome, in this playful, stirring, remarkably unique portrait documentary."

This is the link to the Up Syndrome web site.

I absolutely love these previews and I think I am going to order a copy of the DVD for Sam and David.
