Life, Animated is a documentary about Owen Suskind, a young man who was unable to speak as a child due to autism. One day, his family found a way to communicate with him by immersing them- selves in the world of Disney animated films.
By interweaving classic Disney sequences with scenes from Suskins own life the film explores how empathy with characters like Simba and Ariel allowed Suskind to understand his feelings and interpret the world around him; a moving and inspiring coming-of-age tale.
