Film: LIFE, ANIMATED + Panel & Discussion
Fundraiser for World Autism Awareness Week in association with Sheffield Autistic Society, SAANS and Right Space, presenting the award winning documentary feature “Life, Animated” and panel discussion.
Life, Animated is the inspirational story of Owen Suskind, a young man who was unable to speak as a child until he and his family discovered a unique way to communicate by immersing themselves in the world of classic Disney animated films. This emotional coming-of-age story follows Owen as he graduates to adulthood and takes his first steps toward independence.
