DOWNTOWN. The city of Downs.

[full length documentary (54 min.) by Piotr Sliwowski & Marta Dzido]

The filmmakers accompanied the author of the photographic project and his models - young people with Down Syndrome who, with the help of the photographer, stylists, and their own imagination, impersonated various characters known from the world of fairy-tales and pop culture, revealing through the stylized frames a world of dreams and a piece of truth: about themselves, about universal desires. During one and a half year authors of the film were observing this project, filming Oiko Petersen meetings with his models. Oiko was searching for an answer about their dreams, expectations and sensibility.

The film won a Hollywood Eagle Documentary Award 2011 @ Polish Film Festival in Los Angeles
