My Hero Brother & The Other Dreamers Movie Night | Special Needs Partnership
February 28 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Join the Special Needs Partnership of Jewish Family Service for an inspirational movie night as we celebrate Special Needs Awareness Month.
My Hero Brother is an award-winning documentary about a group of young people with Down syndrome that embark on a demanding trek through the Himalayan mountains with their brothers and sisters. As the siblings deal with physical and emotional challenges, unresolved conflicts come to surface and heartwarming friendships develop on the journey of a lifetime!
Four disabled children in Israel start a journey, on the way to fulfill their dreams. They won’t let their disabilities interrupt them, even if they are the only ones who believe that it’s possible.
During one year, the film follows the life of 4 disabled children in a voluntary association, the only place where they feel safe and equal. The Other Dreamers is a story of dreams that come true, of children who fall in love, get hurt, dance, compete and live their lives exactly like their non-disabled peers, just with the addition of a wheelchair.
