Life Animated

Life, Animated is an exceptional documentary from Academy Award–winning director Roger Ross Williams, based on Ron Suskind’s best-selling book, Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes, and Autism. It is the inspirational story of Owen Suskind (the son of Ron Suskind, the Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist), who just shy of his third birthday developed regressive autism and essentially stopped communicating, with one exception: Owen loved to watch Disney movies with his brother, often watching the same scenes over and over again. He nonetheless remained isolated until he and his family discovered a unique way to communicate by immersing themselves in the world of classic Disney animated films. Not only did the family reunite, in a sense, but they’ve also managed to harness this insight for therapy and tremendous opportunity for intimacy, growth, and fulfillment.
