Italy’s national organization for people with Down syndrome, CoorDown, has teamed up with Saatchi & Saatchi for the fifth consecutive year, this time enlisting the help of the agency’s New York office to create a campaign for World Down Syndrome Day on March 21.

The campaign is manifested through a simple yet powerful online film titled ‘How Do You See Me?’ that features a girl with Down syndrome named AnnaRose Rubright narrating the life she wants to have, and in this life, she’s played by actress Olivia Wilde. This metaphor is aimed to ignite a conversation around how those living with Down syndrome see themselves and how they are often times disadvantaged when people pre-judge them based on their condition. People with Down syndrome are still too often victims of discrimination, and even more than what is said about them, the way other people look at them is a common indicator of this type of prejudice.

Reed Morano directed the online short via Pulse Films.
