This is a film that will touch you in more ways than one.
On Monday June 20th, the acclaimed new documentary Life, Animated held its New York premiere screening at the Crosby Street Hotel. The film tells the story of Owen Suskind, a young autistic man, who with the help of his family was able to use his love of Disney animated films to learn to communicate with the world. The film from Oscar winning documentarian Roger Ross Williams arrived after several engagements at festivals including Sundance where Williams claimed the Directing Award for a U.S. Documentary.
It’s hard to think of anything more strongly engrained in the pop culture consciousness than Disney’s canon of animated films.
