Life, Animated image

Preview film screening of 'Life, Animated' in association with Dogwoof and Picturehouse

An inspirational coming-of-age documentary about Owen Suskind, a remarkable young autistic man with a profound appreciation of Disney movies


We bring members of Time Out Black some of the best new films in documentary cinema in partnership with documentary film distributors, Dogwoof. Monthly preview screening are held at Picturehouse Central, in the heart of Piccadilly Circus.

Members of Time Out Black will be amongst the first to enjoy 'Life Animated' - the inspirational story of Owen Suskind, a remarkable young autistic man 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.

This emotional coming-of-age story follows Owen as he graduates to adulthood and takes his first steps toward independence interweaving classic Disney sequences with verite scenes from Owen’s life in order to explore how his identification and empathy for characters like Simba, Jafar, and Ariel gave him a means to understand his feelings and allowed him to interpret reality.
