Edited by DEGNZ member Jonno Woodford-Robinson, Poppy, inspired by real life hero Poppy Anderson, tells the story of a young woman with Down Syndrome who refuses to let that define her and decides to take control of her own life. Libby Hunsdale told Sunday TVNZ that “We shouldn’t think of Down Syndrome as an illness or condition, it can be a success tool”.
The film was the first local film to resume production after a long hiatus caused by coronavirus in 2020. Poppy was written and directed by Linda Niccol and will open in NZ cinemas on May 27.
