NEW ORLEANS - There's a good chance you don't know someone with Williams Syndrome. The rare genetics disorder strikes only one in 8,000 births.
But that one is very special.
The documentary, "Embraceable," which will be screened by the Advocacy Center, explores the syndrome through candid interviews, unforgettable social encounters and amazing musical performances.
Lois Simpson of The Advocacy Center; Fred Smallwood, the grandfather of a Williams Syndrome child and his grandson Ignatius Garside joined us now with more information.
The Advocacy Center presented a screening of "Embraceable" along with a question and answer session with film maker Jon Kent at the Zeitgeist Multi-disciplinary Arts Center at 1618 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard on Thursday.
