    Life Animated

    Synopsis

    life-animatedFrom Academy Award® winning director Roger Ross Williams, LIFE, ANIMATED is the inspirational story of Owen Suskind, a young 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. The subject of his father Ron Suskind’s New York Times bestseller, Owen was a thriving three year old who suddenly and inexplicably went silent – and for years after remained unable to connect with other people or to convey his thoughts, feelings or desires. Over time, through repeated viewings of Disney classics like THE LITTLE MERMAID and THE LION KING, Owen found useful tools to help him to understand complex social cues and to re-connect with the world around him. LIFE, ANIMATED evocatively interweaves 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. Beautiful, original animations offer rich insights into Owen’s fruitful dialogue with the Disney oeuvre as he imagines himself heroically facing adversity as a member in a tribe of sidekicks. Owen’s story is a moving testament to the many ways in which stories can serve as a means of persevering through the dark times, leading us all toward the light.

    50 years of singing, over 5,000 concerts, more than 40 countries on music tours … 80 albums, 500 plus ghazals, 300 bhajans and many memorable film songs that will resound loud for eternity … Jagjit Singhwas perhaps the first Independent music star of India.

    With a voice cool as ice and stirring enough to break or mend your heart,Jagjit Singh has been India’s most iconic ghazal maestro by all accounts. Generations have turned to him in their moments of sorrow, pain, anguish, dejection … as much as they have in their times of triumphs & celebrations.

    Kaagaz Ki Kashti … is an evocative account of a down-to-earth small-town boy from Ganganagar, Rajasthan who made it big by adding that extra something in his music … giving it a polish and a soul at the same time … choosing simple but touching urdu poetry, setting them to simple tunes and introducing western instrumentation to make them textured, contemporary and rich. This lyrical feature-documentary uses his music and the poems he chose to sing … to tell his own story … of his exciting life-journey to stardom, of love and loss, of tribulations and triumphs. In the process, the film captures the man behind the visible and the childlike artist behind his creations.

    Shot in Ganganagar, Rajasthan, where he was born and grew up; Punjab where he spent some formative years and finally Mumbai, where he flowered and established himself as a legend, the film promises to be also one of the best visualized accounts of his compositions, so rich in irony and nuances about shades of life.
