AC presents "Embraceable," a Film about Williams Syndrome on July 26!
On Thursday, July 26, 2012, the Advocacy Center will host a screening of "Embraceable," a Film about Williams Syndrome. The event will be held at Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center (1618 Oretha Castle Haley in New Orleans) at 7:30 pm.
Williams Syndrome is a genetic condition that is present at birth and can affect anyone. It is characterized by medical problems such as cardiovascular disease, developmental delays, and learning disabilities. Those with Williams Syndrome display a distinctive, "elfin" facial appearance, highly social personalities with striking verbal abilities, and an affinity for music.
Filmmaker Jon Kent will be in attendance for a Q&A after the screening. The event will also feature an exhibition of Kent's photographs of children with Williams Syndrome, which has been displayed at such notable venues at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
There is a $20 suggested donation for this event.
