Event description: This documentary will be of particular interest to those who experience autism & in particular have communication barriers and those who may care for them or live with someone who has autism.

This new documentary has won awards and acclaim at festivals worldwide. Following an autistic teenager, Owen, it tells the story of his fascination with Disney animations and how they have given him both a pathway to understanding language and a framework for making sense of the world.
By interweaving classic Disney sequences with vérité scenes from Owen’s life, the film explores how identification and empathy with characters like Simba, Jafar, and Ariel offer a conduit for him to catalogue his emotions and interpret reality. An unsentimental and powerful coming-of-age tale, Life, Animated offers a moving insight into both the experience of autism and the transformative possibilities of cinema.
