1. En "DOWN TO BE UP", María Bárbara Rondón, joven con Síndrome de Down, nos lleva a los más recónditos rincones de su corazón para que encontremos el significado de las cosas que la mayoría de nosotros damos por sentadas. Al concentrar su energía en mejorarse a sí misma para poder ayudar a otros, su auto análisis nos estimula y nos guía a tomar el control de nuestras vidas.
    En esta película que dirige su hermana menor, Victoria Rondón y co-dirige Steven Vega, María Bárbara transmite sus puntos de vista mediante la yuxtaposición de un imaginario surrealista y de sonidos míticos. A pesar de sus dificultades para hablar, en "Down to be up" María confiesa que comparte sus miedos más íntimos y sus victorias mediante la poesía. Sus palabras nos recuerdan que a pesar de las dificultades, todos tenemos la responsabilidad de esforzarnos constantemente por ser cada día mejores. María Bárbara nos demuestra que nunca estamos tan abajo "Down" que no podamos subir, "to be up".
