An uplifting documentary that portraits Ruby Dine.
Directed by Rachel Louise Norwood & Acacia Jade Redding ‘My Heart is Flying’ is a short documentary that portraits Ruby Dine as she recites her poetry. Ruby has Down Syndrome, but that doesn’t limit her zest for life and spirituality. The film explores themes of identity, mental health, disability and friendship. A touching film that highlights Ruby’s infectious tenacity. The documentary is produced in black and white.

Throughout the entire documentary we learn about Ruby’s passions; meditation, swimming, female companionship and her dog Ralph. As she recites her poetry in narration, we witness her life-grasping personality through visual documentation.
