Director: Ian Davies
Available to stream at home from Sunday 21 March
Twin sisters Amber and Olivia are beautifully captured by their father, Ian Davies, in Amber and Me, a tender and intimate documentary that charts the girls’ journeys through four years of primary school. Amber has Down’s Syndrome and although her first experience at school is positive, she soon starts to struggle.
Preferring to bake cakes and play in her make-believe shop, Amber asks to stay at home. But if her school work does not improve, she may have to go to a different school. As Olivia steps in to help her sister, the film enchantingly captures how the dynamics of their relationship changes from both of their perspectives.
