Compass Card Partner Brighton Table Tennis Club was recently involved in a film about three of the club’s players who travelled to represent England in the European Down’s Syndrome Championships. The film, ‘Believe That’, was produced and directed by 20 year old Brightonian Caleb Yule and explores the highs and lows of the trip, which saw Harry Fairchild, Chris O’Flinn and Andrew Tonkin head into the competition as the lowest ranked team. The film premiere sold out at the Duke of York’s cinema in Brighton in May and a second date was added in August – but you can watch the film for free here. The 30 minute documentary won the ‘David Thomas Emerging Filmmaker Prize’ and filmmaker Caleb is going to document the team’s up and coming trip to the World Down’s Syndrome Finals next month.
