Body and Soul: Diana and Kathy

(Body and Soul: Diana and Kathy) Director: Alice Elliott, USA, 2006, English version / translated into Czech, 40 min

Body & Soul: Diana & Kathy is a true story about two life-long friends who have made their home in Springfield, Illinois. Diana drives, cooks, shops, and has been Kathy’s personal assistant and friend for the past 35 years. Remarkably, Diana has Down syndrome, a genetic condition that gives her one extra chromosome and a lower IQ. Kathy on the other hand is 61, has a degree in English, but is non-verbal, and has had cerebral palsy since her birth. As part of their ongoing activist efforts to demystify disability, Diana and Kathy invited Alice into their home over a period of five years to create their film. The documentary is an intimate portrait of two women with disabilities who are determined to live independent, non-institutionalized lives.
