Description

In Chile, a group of Down Syndrome adults has attended the same special school since
childhood. Now over 40-something-years-old, they yearn for more independence and challenge
than they have working in the school’s bakery, but run into roadblocks from family and society.
A mixture of heartache and humor, the film is informative, compassionate and never
condescending.

 

Maite Alberdi directed TEA TIME, which screened at SFF 2015.
