Tying Your Own Shoes

A year ago I had the privilege of working on Shira Avni's animated documentary, Tying Your Own Shoes, a film about the lives of 4 adult artists with Down Syndrome. The film blends both animation based on the artists' drawings, but also animation created by the artists' themselves. I was inspired, to say the least.

I'm so pleased that the film premiered at the DOK Leipzig Festival, and even happier to say that it took home a Golden Dove, the grand prize for best short documentary. Congratulations Shira!

Anyways, here is a small clip of animation that I did, based off a drawing by Ninah, one of the artists. Again, do check out the film's website and I will post when I hear of a screening!
