|Summary, etc.:|| At three years old, a chatty, energetic little boy named Owen Suskind suddenly stopped speaking and disappeared into autism. Almost four years passed and the only thing that seemed to engage Owen were Disney films. Then one day his father donned one of his sons puppets: Iago, the wisecracking parrot from Aladdin and asked “What's it like to be you?” Suddenly Owen responded to his father using dialogue from the movie. Directed by Academy Award®-winner Roger Ross Williams (2009, Best Documentary Short Subject, Music by Prudence), Life, Animated tells the remarkable story of how Owen found a pathway to language and a framework for making sense of the world through Disney animated films. By evocatively interweaving classic Disney sequences with veriť scenes from Owen's life, the film explores how identification and empathy with characters like Simba, Jafar, and Ariel create a context for him to understand his feelings and interpret reality.
