Simultaneously heart-breaking and heart-warming, this short film shows a social experiment carried out in Russia to illustrate the attitidues that parents and society in general tend to pass on to children by the time the youngsters are school age. It involves the set-up of two playrooms, identical except that one has a child already playing in it, for children to choose from to play in. The child already playing has Down Syndrome. Watch and see how other children react. The Naked Heart Foundation which made the film was set up by Russian model Natalia Vodianova to encourage a more inclusive society. “Children learn by example and we can set them a positive one!," says Vodianova. "Let your children play, learn and laugh with all their peers, whether special needs or typically developing, and see there is more that unites us than divides us. Let them ask questions about mental and physical disability and be prepared to speak to them about special needs without making this a ‘difficult’ subject. Teach children what they’ve taught us.” Did the film teach you something?
