Amber has Down’s Syndrome and is about to start primary school with her twin sister, Olivia. Although at first her experience is positive, she soon starts to lose interest and asks to stay at home. Olivia is keen to keep her twin sister in the same school and so begins the struggle of keeping the girls together.

This intimate documentary follows the challenges for both girls through four years of school and charts the changes in their relationship, from their own perspectives.

Amber and Me is directed by the girls’ father Ian Davies. Having worked on several documentaries before as a producer, this is his first film as a director.

Followed by a pre-recorded 20 minute Q&A with director Ian Davies.

This screening marks World Down Syndrome Day, which takes place on Sunday 21 March

One of the most touching portrayals of childhood that you're ever likely to see.

The Mail on Sunday
