Autism Movie: Life Animated

April 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$7.00

Join Team Autism 24/7 and the local autism community at the screening of Life, Animated, a documentary by Academy Award winning filmmaker Roger Ross Williams based on a book by Pulitzer Prize winning writer Ron Suskind.

Life, Animated is the real-life story of Owen Suskind, the son of the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ron Suskind and his wife, Cornelia. An autistic boy who couldn’t speak for years, Owen memorized dozens of Disney movies, turned them into a language to express love and loss, kinship, brotherhood. The family was forced to become animated characters, communicating with him in Disney dialogue and song; until they all emerge, together, revealing how, in darkness, we all literally need stories to survive.

“It’s a film to which I believe everyone can relate, an EMOTIONAL POWERHOUSE.” – Roger Ebert
