Short Film Profile

One Man's Walk

A boy walks down a street. We do not see his face. He is the event but we don't know why. He tells us his likes and dislikes as he passes through the streets of his town. Finally we see his face and understand.

Film notes

A window on the wonderful world of Kenneth Mitchell, his brother, friends and favourite things. The film was the idea of Nicholas Mitchell whose brother, Kenneth, has Down’s Syndrome and communication difficulties. Through the telling of his story, Kenneth’s apparent handicap was turned around and he became the star of his own film.

One Man’s Walk was a collaborative production between a group of 10 mixed ability young people from a variety of backgrounds. The group of young people were aged between 14-18 and were guided by professional filmmakers at Interplay in Leeds, UK. The roles of cast and crew would have been undertaken by various members of the young people in the group. Each would have had the opportunity to write, act, shoot, direct, light, edit, produce and screen their own film.
