Penelope, my Love

By Claire Doyon

Claire Doyon's new film, which won two awards at the Marseilles FID, tells the story of her daughter Penelope, who lives with Rett Syndrome, a rare genetic disease that manifests itself through autistic disorders. Twenty years of stories and family archives plunge us into their journey: first, the shock of the diagnosis, the declaration of war, and finally, the acceptance and discovery of another way of life. Claire Doyon presents a diary of exceptional sensitivity, a heartfelt message of love and a cry of humanity.
