Ehsan Knopf is proud to announce the release of his first feature film Flying Solo (2018) on Vimeo On Demand and Amazon. The film follows three people with Down syndrome in Sydney, Australia as they embark on a quest to become independent.
Digby Webster is a talented artist who dreams of one day moving out of home. Friend Tom Elenor fantasizes about stardom but struggles with the responsibilities that come with living independently. Award-winning actress Tracie Sammut now wants to teach acting and put a stop to industry stereotyping. As they take their first strides towards independence, each will face new challenges and opportunities that will test their resolve. In their struggle to find a balance between dreams and reality, can they fly – or will they fall?
Flying Solo is a social impact film that aims to inspire change around a widespread lack of access to supported accommodation options for people with intellectual disabilities, ensuring everyone has access to housing that is adequate to their needs and the ability to live independently.
