Think of Me First as a Person,

a documentary shown publicly at the 2006 Home Movie Day in New Orleans, has been named to the National Film Registry by the Librarian of Congress, who chooses 25 “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant motion pictures to add to the Registry each year.

The film is a father’s portrait of life with a child with Down syndrome, originally shot by Dwight Core Sr. during the years 1960-1975. It was restored and completed by Core’s grandson, George Ingmire. More information is available here.
