Oscar-nominated Life, Animated tells the remarkable real-life story of Owen Suskind, an autistic boy who couldn’t speak for years until he found in Disney animation a pathway to language and a framework for making sense of the world. Beautiful, original animations further give form to Owen’s fruitful dialogue with the Disney oeuvre as he imagines himself heroically facing adversity in a tribe of sidekicks. With an arsenal of narratives at his disposal, Owen rises to meet the challenges of adulthood in this moving coming-of-age tale.
