ELFs: Life, Animated
ELFs & Kino Monoplexx:
From Academy Award winning director Roger Ross Williams, "Life, Animated" is the inspirational story of Owen Suskind, a young autistic man who was unable to speak as a child until he and his family discovered a unique way to communicate through the world of classic Disney animated films.
An educational achievement masquerading as a feel-good documentary, and a must-watch. This documentary, through expressive sound design, appealing animation and Owen’s observations, gives real insight into the mind of an autistic person.
