Life, Animated is the story of Owen Suskind
Owen was a thriving, lively child who suddenly and inexplicably went silent at the age of three. For years after Owen remained unable to connect with other people or to convey his thoughts, feelings or desires. For years Owen's parents tried everything they could to communicate with their son, but nothing worked, until they found a way to immerse themselves in the world of classic Disney animated films. Life, Animated is an emotional, inspirational coming-of-age story that follows Owen as he graduates to adulthood and takes his first steps toward independence. The screening is at the beautiful Shortwave cinema in Bermondsey, so come along, enjoy a drink and a pizza on the enormous sun terrace, and discuss this amazing film with some fellow documentary lovers. Life, Animated has been awarded a PG certificate by the BBFC.
