In LIFE ANIMATED, Director Roger Ross Williams (Music by Prudence, 2010 Academy Award® recipient for Documentary Short Subject) tells 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, and turned them into a language to express love, loss, kinship, and brotherhood. Williams won the Documentary Directing Award for the film at Sundance 2016.
