SYNOPSIS

Downtown showcases the work of Polish photographer Oiko Petersen, who decided to feature people with Down Syndrome in a high fashion photo spread.

Downtown is a small town of people with Down Syndrome, where people can go when they feel bad — that is what the song says. 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.
