Film Synopsis

Winner of the Directing Award at the Sundance Film Festival, LIFE, ANIMATED is the inspirational story of Owen Suskind, a young man living with autism whose life is enriched by Disney animated films, and the unconditioned love from his family. Owen Suskind is an autistic young man who could not speak for years as a child and yet slowly emerged from his isolation by immersing himself in Disney animated movies. The subject of his father Ron Suskind’s New York Times bestseller, Owen used these films as a roadmap to reconnect with his loving family and the wider world. LIFE, ANIMATED is an emotional coming-of-age story that shows the next stage of Owen’s journey as he takes his first steps towards independence.
