Filming - Delaware
We got lucky and were able to stay with my parents in Delaware while filming in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and stayed an additional five days to film with my sister Gabrielle and the rest of my family during the first week of July. As you may know, my older sister Gabrielle has Down syndrome and was the inspiration for this documentary. Now it was my turn to be on the other side of the camera - we filmed all over Wilmington and had a blast reminiscing over our favorite childhood memories and spending some quality sister-time together! We also had the privilege of interviewing three more illustrious thought leaders, including world-renowned self-advocate Loretta Claiborne, n-word expert Jabari Asim, and best-selling author Rachel Simon. We were blown away by their personal perspectives and the powerful and moving message they each imparted - a day of filming we will never forget!
