As part of the development of the screenplay of “The Story of Luke”, Writer/Director Alonso Mayo made several research trips to Centro Ann Sullivan del Perú, a school for people with autism and other developmental disabilities that his mother founded in Lima, Peru, and whose students and parents provided inspiration for “The Story of Luke”. On one of his trips, Alonso decided to document the lives of some of the families he met, resulting in the short documentary “Just Like Anyone – 5 Stories from the Ann Sullivan Center of Peru” (43min.)
“Just like Anyone” gives us a glimpse into the lives of 5 families that are doing their best to help their sons succeed, even though they are faced with severe developmental disabilities. It explores the journey that all these families have been through to accept their sons as who they are, and then begin to work as a family, and in cooperation with their school – Centro Ann Sullivan del Peru – to help them reach ever increasing goals.
