Film | “Life, Animated”

Location is wheelchair accessible
Directed by Roger Ross Williams (2016; rated PG; 89 minutes)

Chapel Haven is celebrating its Asperger Syndrome Adult Transition (ASAT) Program’s tenth anniversary this year. As part of the celebration, “Life, Animated” will be screened in the Center’s Lecture Hall followed by light refreshments in the Docent Room and artwork created by participants in the Center’s Access Programs on view.

“Life, Animated” is the inspirational story of Owen Suskind, a young man with autism 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. While America’s two million people with autism are as diverse as the wider population, many possess a subtle weave of gifts and challenges that, year by year, are revealing underlying—and often unrecognized—capacities of the human mind. What the journey of this boy and his family powerfully reveals is how, in darkness, we literally need stories to survive.
