Film and Speaker Series to Feature Life, Animated
Join us for a heartwarming story as the Museum of disABILITY History Film and Speaker Series features Life, Animated on Friday, April 28, at North Park Theatre, 1428 Hertel Avenue, Buffalo, NY. There will be one showing at 7 p.m., followed by a film discussion.
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. An emotional coming-of-age story, the film follows Owen as he graduates to adulthood and takes his first steps toward independence. Life, Animated was a 2017 Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary.
Co-presented by Autism Services, Inc., the film event’s goal is to educate viewers, offer different perspectives, challenge stereotypes and celebrate the contributions of people with disabilities.
Admission tickets are $7.50 each and will be available to purchase at North Park Theatre. For more information, call 716.629.3626. Updates will be posted on the Museum’s Facebook page.
