John and Michael
Authors: Shira Avni
Here are a few excerpts from the films description by the Go Sprout Film Festival:
"John and Michael pays homage to two men with Down syndrome who shared an intimate and profoundly loving relationship that deeply affected the filmmaker... Narrator Brian Davis, also intellectually challenged, brings the men alive with great sensitivity."
"John and Michael, by its artistry, rises above society’s traditional ideas around disability, sexuality and death. When the heart is touched, differences melt. Love is what defines humanity."
The film was created by Shira Avni. Here is more about Ms. Avni:
"Born in Petakh Tikvah, Israel in 1974, Shira Avni was raised in Montreal... Her first film, From Far Away, part of the Talespinners collection, has screened in over thirty festivals worldwide and has won several prizes, including the Golden Sheaf Award for Best Children’s Production at the Yorkton Short Film and Video Festival."
