Flying Solo

Portfolio---Digby-painting-3Flying Solo (formerly known as The Talented Mr Digby) is a feature documentary about three friends with an intellectual disability on a quest to become independent. Digby Webster is a 27-year-old talented artist who dreams of one day moving out of home. His friend Tom Elenor fantasises about a stardom that will elevate him out of his mundane life. Award-winning actress Tracie Sammut now wants to teach other people with a disability and put a stop to industry stereotyping. All three share the same challenge: a society that doesn’t always understand or accommodate them. Only by turning to a world beyond practicality and circumstance – the world of art – can they ever hope to change anything. Joining forces, Digby, Tom and Tracie embark on a journey to find freedom through the creative arts and prove that all dreams are made equal.
