Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Ron Suskind, will appear with the documentary Life, Animated, based on his memoir Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes, and Autism. The book recounts how the Suskinds broke through to their autistic son Owen using a technique called Affinity Therapy, exposing him to Disney movies that Owen memorized and used as a pathway to communication.
In addition to authoring six best-selling books, Suskind was a Senior National Affairs writer for the Wall Street Journal. He has covered capitalism and our nation’s capital in addition to penning front-page investigative features on poverty, race and class in America, which won him a Pulitzer Prize. Suskind is currently a Senior Fellow at Harvard’s Edmund J. Safra Center for Ethics.
