Film: Monica & David

Many of Springboard’s friends may remember our promotion of the film, MONICA & DAVID, which has now been nominated for an EMMY Award. The Educational Edition DVD launched this past week with special featured content of adults with Down syndrome who live independently, work in the community, and a story of a couple who’s been married for 14 years. The videos feature lead disability advocates, such as: Emily Perl Kingsley, Lawrence Carter-Long and Terri Couwenhoven and other bonus material. The DVD includes audio description and closed captioning.

Over two million Americans have seen MONICA & DAVID on HBO. It is currently playing in 14 countries, and HBO Latin America just purchased the film to air in Central and South America. Obtain your copy online at
