DIRECTOR: ALI CODINA

American director Ali Codina made a film about the first year of marriage of her cousin Monica and her husband David: an adult couple with Down’s syndrome. „Monica and David“ starts just before the wedding, and follows the couple from that point up to the celebratory dinner to mark their first anniversary. A lot happens during this year – they move house, and it turns out that David is diabetic. Codina films the day-to-day goings on in fly-on-the-wall style, including interviews with family members that show what a crucial role the two broad-minded mothers play in Monica and David’s lives.
