July 14 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Focus Film Presents:

Life, Animated- by Roger Ross Williams

Right Footed- by Nick Spark

Join us for a wonderful evening of two award winning films.

Life, Animated Synopsis:

From 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.

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.

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.

Right Footed Synopsis:

Born without arms as the result of a severe birth defect, Jessica Cox never allowed herself to believe that that she couldn’t accomplish her dreams. An expert martial artist, college graduate and motivational speaker, Jessica is also the world’s only armless airplane pilot, a mentor, and an advocate for people with disabilities.

Right Footed will begin at 5:00pm (82 min)

Life, Animated will begin at 6:45 (89 min)
