Dakota’s Pride – Documentaries That Span 10 Years in the Lives of People with Down Syndrome Two of the films in our DOWNs Town Theater come from filmmaker and father, Girard Sagmiller. The first, Dakota’s Pride, introduces us to several people with Down syndrome (Ds) and professionals who care for them.  It tells the story of a father looking for answers about Ds after his family’s newest addition is diagnosed with the genetic condition. The second, Dakota’s Pride 2.0 is a follow-up to that film. In it, Sagmiller re-connects with some of the stars of the first film, 10 years later.
