This home-made no-budget fly-on-the-wall series started accidentally with a 3 minute upload to YouTube in 2009, this first episode went viral. Requests for what happened next followed and the 'My Little Sister(who happens to have Down's syndrome) series was born. Together now in one set, here are the first 7 episodes charting the first years of this groundbreaking documentary series which follows the sister's lives growing up together. The sisters live in the hills of rural Wales and have never been to school.
The heartwarming series that started when the sisters were 4 and 7 years old, filmed on a very basic camera. As the episodes progress, we see the filmmaking skills develop alongside the sisters. The elder sister is Agi K, who edits and narrates the films giving her views on their shared world.
Agi K went on to win the 'One to Watch' award from The National Youth Film Festival in 2013, Who described her films as having 'quirky and creative editing coupled with gentleness, humour and the keen insight of a child.'
These positive films show the everyday beauty in learning from each others differences.
We see the sisters having fun, learning and exploring life together as they grow through the years.

These films have been found to be particularly valuable and inspiring for new parents and families who may be wondering about the impact of a diagnosis of Down's syndrome. Equally valuable for healthcare workers and educational professionals.
"Agnieszka, you are destined for great things. This is a film that needs to go viral. I think you can change the world's perception of Down syndrome. These children deserve to live full lives, but more than that... WE deserve to have them in our lives. They will teach us how to love in ways that we are so lacking. Thank you for sharing your beautiful life." Julie Bork from Texas USA
