LASS MICH FLIEGEN

Documentary Film, AT 2022, digital, 80 min, 24.03. OmeU / 26.03. dOF

LASS MICH FLIEGEN accompanies four young people who shape their lives according to their own wishes, take a stand for their right to work, marriage, children, and political participation and resist the socially enforced limitations of a trisomy 21 diagnosis. A powerful portrait about being seen and heard that tells of both the struggle as well as the absolute will to live a self-determined life.
