We are artists here at oakwellbarns and we speak best through our art, which arises directly out of the life we live here. Our contribution to the information out there about Down’s syndrome, is through film. It is a joy to share our world of natural learning and contribute our experiences through the ‘My Little Sister (who happens to have Down’s syndrome)’ films. If you believe that a picture speaks a thousand words you will understand the power of these fly-on-the-wall style documentaries.
What Magdalena brings to our lives and to the world enriches beyond measure. Many people don’t see this because they are moving too fast to notice, or are blinded by pre-conceptions. Through these films you get a chance to meet the Magdalena that you would find if you slowed down enough to connect with her.
Agi K has been documenting the life she lives here with her little sister since she was 8 and her sister was 4, and making these into award winning films. The girls are now 13 and 10 (2016) This series is a life-long project and is totally self-funded through the sale of the films and any donations. We want the films to be accessible to all so we keep the price affordable to all.

‘So simple yet so powerful; it’s a kind of ‘all you need to know about DS’. This is a great help to those of us with relatives who have DS; I have a beautiful granddaughter aged nearly six so I shall use your piece to send to friends and others who don’t yet fully understand. Thank you Agi K.’
‘Agi K, you are destined for great things. This is a film that needs to go viral. I think you can change the world’s perception of Down syndrome. These children deserve to live full lives, but more than that… WE deserve to have them in our lives. They will teach us how to love in ways that we are so lacking. Thank you for sharing your beautiful life.’ Julie Bork from Texas USA
