Uma, Ebba and Joseph 3/3

Tabea Hosche has been following the life of her daughter Uma with her camera since 2012. Uma is mentally impaired due to a rare genetic defect, and is hard of hearing and has epilepsy and a severe speech development disorder. 

In the third of Tabea's films, Uma is now 11 and the eldest of three siblings. Her sister Ebba is three years younger, and baby brother Joseph nine years younger.

Uma, unlike Ebba, still needs help getting dressed, going to the toilet and eating. Ebba knows that Uma has a disability but sometimes has difficulty understanding everything that means. And thinks it should be enough that she is considerate of her little brother Joseph.

After Uma and Me (2016) and Uma and Us (2018), in Uma, Ebba and Joseph journalist Tabea examines her children's relationships with each other and the influence Uma's disability has on the development of her siblings.

This programme by German channel ARD is part of The European Collection, a joint initiative of European public media (ARD, ARTE, France Télévisions, SSR SRG and ZDF), coordinated by ARTE.
