Venue: Henry Travers Studio
Running Time: 59m approx with Q&A after the screening
In alignment with World Downs Syndrome Day on the 21st March, we bring you the documentary Amber & Me, directed by the Father of twin girls; one with Down's Syndrome, Ian Davies. Ian will join us after the screening with the girls, Amber and Olivia, for a Q&A about the film.

Twin sisters, trying to stay together - see it through their eyes.

Amber has Down’s Syndrome and is about to start primary school with her twin sister, Olivia. Although at first her experience is positive, she starts to struggle and asks to stay at home. Olivia tries to help her sister with her school work, in the knowledge that if the situation doesn’t improve, Amber may have to go to a different school.

The film follows the challenges for both girls through 4 years of primary school and charts the changes in their relationship, uniquely from their own perspectives. 

Amber and Me is directed by their father Ian Davies. Ian has worked on several documentaries before as a producer. This is his first film as a director.
