I am proud to report that eitas has released its first-ever short film, The Dance, that tells the love story of Nia and Marshall, two persons supported by Developmental Disability Services of Jackson County.
Footage of the film’s stars, Nia and Marshall, was obtained over a two-day period in December, 2015. Nia and Marshall allowed the Films for Humanity team to accompany them on a series of very special outings around the Kansas City metro, as well as to their respective homes. The two have been a couple for sometime and plan to be married in the next year.
We enjoyed a special film screening for eitas staff on March 4, 2016. In a nutshell, the film is more than we could have ever hoped for. It is a love story, pure and simple. We have been given a glimpse into the lives of two people who are deeply in love…people who have the same needs and wants and desires that we all have. We are so proud that Nia and Marshall’s support coordinators were able to step in and facilitate their relationship in such a helpful and meaningful way.
