Reel 2: Life, Animated

This wonderfully different documentary tells the story of Owen Suskind, A.K.A Protector of Sidekicks, who is an admirable and amazing autistic young man. Life, Animated provides viewers a beautiful and inspiring coming-of-age story based on the book by Ron Suskind, Owen’s father.


Reel 1: The First Monday in May

Impressive. Gorgeous. Fabulous. Over a year ago I was invited into a ‘Documentary Club’, something I had never heard of or ever considered, but thought ‘how interesting.’ The group ran similarly to a book club; the host chose the documentary film, members viewed it in advance and attended an evening discussion once per month. Although it lasted about two years, it was an educating and enlightening experience which I was disappointed to see end.
