Life Animated

location The Umbrella Cafe | 7 PM-10:30 PM Friday 27 January 2017 (GMT)

Doors open at 7pm for pizza, cocktails and drinks, film starts at 8pm. Join us for one of the most uplifting and fascinating documentaries ever made.

Life, Animated tells the remarkable story of how Owen found in Disney animation a pathway to language and a framework for making sense of the world. By evocatively interweaving classic Disney sequences with verite scenes from Owen’s life, the film explores how identification and empathy with characters like Simba, Jafar, and Ariel forge a conduit for him to understand his feelings and interpret reality. Beautiful, original animations further give form to Owen’s fruitful dialogue with the Disney oeuvre as he imagines himself heroically facing adversity in a tribe of sidekicks. With an arsenal of narratives at his disposal, Owen rises to meet the challenges of adulthood in this moving coming-of-age tale.
