Event Details

Visible is a short, inclusively made film about a teenager with trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) who decides to assume the persona of a superhero in order to be noticed at school.

The film is based on the short story, “Secret” written by actress and filmmaker, Audrey O’Connor. Based on Audrey’s lived experience of being excluded as a teenager. The film is a vibrant, heartfelt and authentic three-minute exploration of how it feels to be overlooked, forgotten and excluded. Created through six inclusive filmmaking workshops with six filmmakers with intellectual disability through Bus Stop Films’ Accessible Film Studies Program at AFTRS and under the guidance and facilitation of writer/director Genevieve Clay-Smith. Audrey’s thought provoking and deeply personal story was brought to life through a fully inclusive and authentic creative process. Visible was funded by City of Sydney and Cushman & Wakefield with VFX from Animal Logic.
