My Hero Brother follows a group of sibling pairs on their journey up and through the Himalayan Mountains in India – except in each sibling pair, one has Down’s syndrome. It is incredibly moving to watch the siblings’ relationships grow and strengthen as they both reach heights they never have before, figuratively and literally.

This documentary film garnered much success, and was received positively by both audiences and critics alike. This film received a score of 7.5/10 on IMDb, and garnered Nir multiple awards including the Best International Director Award at the Documentary Edge Festival on New Zealand, and both the Jury Award and Audience Choice Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. The film was also screened at over 120 film festivals around the globe.
