In 2019, Dallas-based filmmaker Ricky Townsend followed his friends Austin & Christi Davenport for a year. The Davenports are one of the few couples in the U.S. with Downs syndrome that have been married for more than 10 years.
The trailer / sizzle reel created during post-production led to the funding for a larger project: a feature documentary revolving around a theatre troupe of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), of which the Davenports are cast-members of.
Townsend will be writing and producing, with Emmy® and Peabody award-winner Thaddeus D. Matula directing and producing - production has not commenced, but the film is set for 2022 release.
