FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY SPECIAL EVENT IN UK & IRISH CINEMAS ON 29TH SEPTEMBER!

Directed by: Ric Burns 

‘A multi-layered portrait of a brilliant but complex man’ – READER’S DIGEST 

‘Tender and thrilling’ – VARIETY

Oliver Sacks was a man of extremes. In his youth, he was a self-destructive rebel who fled London for San Francisco to reinvent himself as a bodybuilding biker, struggling with drug addiction and his own sexuality. In his maturity, he became a pioneering neurologist and the author of best-sellers such as Awakenings and The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat. Filmed just weeks after receiving a terminal diagnosis with full access to the man himself and those closest to him, OLIVER SACKS: HIS OWN LIFE both celebrates Sacks’ incredible life and reminds us of his most important teaching: that our ability to connect with others is what truly makes us human. 

Directed by celebrated documentary filmmaker Ric Burns, the film features exclusive interviews with Jonathan Miller, Robert Silvers, Temple Grandin, Christof Koch, Robert Krulwich, Lawrence Weschler, Roberto Calasso, Paul Theroux, Bill Hayes, Kate Edgar, and Atul Gawande, and others and also draws on unique access to the extensive archives of the Oliver Sacks Foundation

OLIVER SACKS: HIS OWN LIFE is a tender, joyous and life affirming portrait of a truly extraordinary man.
