How Do You See Me?

Actress Olivia Wilde appears in the latest moving film by Saatchi & Saatchi for Italy's national organization for people with Down Syndrome.
The spot, directed by Reed Morano at Pulse Films, highlights World Down Syndrome Day on March 21. It aims to start a conversation around how those living with Down Syndrome see themselves and how they can be disadvantaged when people pre-judge them based on their condition.
