Life, Animated

Directed by Roger Ross Williams Produced by Julie Goldman

After years of struggle, Ron Suskind discovers that Disney animated films provide the key to connecting with his severely autistic son Owen. As Owen takes steps towards independence, he continues to find a sense of understanding and joy from his beloved Disney tales. Combining clips from Disney classics with brand-new animation that imagines Owen as the hero of his own adventure, Academy Award-winning director Roger Ross Williams crafts an inspirational, real-life fairy tale and warm coming-of-age portrait.
