Documentaire / 2018 / 1:20 / Director: Klara Van Es / / Belgiƫ / Spoken languages: Dutch / Subtitles: Dutch, French

Like us, people with disabilities, have moods and temperaments that can clash. They have their thoughts, desires, feelings and opinions and a life of their own. In poetic black and white, we peek inside the minds of Nadine, Sofie, Sam, Quan, Mathias and Jessica, who all live in a care center for people with reduced mental possibilities. Sofie cannot do all that much but when she likes or doesn't like something you will understand. Mathias has Autism Spectrum Disorder and although it is not easy to understand all social interaction, he makes people happy by memorising their birthdays. Nadine who has Down syndrome started to suffer from dementia. Sam, who also has Down syndrome, copes with his feelings through music. Quan was born in China and hopes to return there one day. And Jessica finds it difficult to combine work, competitive horse riding and a relationship. While they unravel their emotions over the course of 1 year's time, each of them teaches us about the world, about how to cope with moods and looks and how to cope with ourselves. Please don't stare, but yes, you can take a look, even more: Watch Me.
