Life, Animated

Screening: Sunday, May 22, 12pm


Directed by Roger Ross Williams

Running Time: 89 minutes

Synopsis: Based on Ron Suskind’s memoir, this documentary tells the story of Ron’s autistic son Owen and how they used Disney movies to communicate with each other. Live-action and animated sequences depict Owen’s exploration of his feelings as he takes his first steps toward independence.

“Teems with insights into how children’s fantasy can and can’t bridge a developmental gap, but works on an even more basic, emotional level as a warm testament to a family’s love and resilience.”
-Justin Chang, Variety

“His story is heartwarming, moving and illuminating about how not just people with autism but all of us process cinema and society.”
-Brian Tallerico,
