|Summary:||In this short film, Toronto artist Petra Tolley, who has Down syndrome, performs a soliloquy that encapsulates her distinctive take on the social self. Drawing from her emotional experiences, she illustrates what it feels like to be "in the middle." Employing rotoscopy, hand-drawn animation techniques, and subtle stereoscopic 3D, the film captures Petra as she engages the camera with unflinching directness and dignity.|
