Monica and David is an award-winning documentary film by Alexandra Codina. It explores the marriage of two adults with Down syndrome and the family who strives to support their needs. Monica and David are blissfully in love and want what other adults have-an independent life. Full of humor, romance and everyday family drama, the film uses intimate fly-on-the wall footage to reveal the complexity of their story. While Monica and David are capable beyond expectations, their parents, aware of mainstream rejection of adults with intellectual disabilities, have trouble letting go. For more information on the film-winner of the "Best Documentary Feature" award at the Tribeca Film Festival-please visit www.monicaanddavid.com.
The film will have its broadcast premiere on HBO on Thursday, October 14 at 8:00 pm, EST. Description lovers worldwide can enjoy the soundtrack with audio description via an audio stream on ACB Radio, also beginning at 8:00 pm, EST, on Thursday, October 14. Simply go to www.acbradio.org/world to listen in to the film with description crafted by ACB's Audio Description Project, produced in close collaboration with director Codina and streamed on ACB Radio with special thanks to HBO Documentary.
