Description

This Oscar-nominated documentary introduces us to Owen Suskind, a young man with autism who, as a child, was unable to speak until he and his family discovered a unique way to communicate—immersing themselves in the world of classic Disney animated films. A coming-of-age story, the film follows Owen as he graduates to adulthood and takes his first steps toward independence. Join Ron Suskind, Owen’s father and author of the New York Times bestseller that inspired the film, who will discuss how stories helped his family find their way through hard times.
