Synopsis

OLIVER SACKS: HIS OWN LIFE explores the life and work of a man of extremes - from bodybuilding biker and battles with drug addiction, homophobia and the medical establishment to pioneering neurologist and legendary storyteller, author of best-sellers such as Awakenings and The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat.


Filmed with full access to the man himself, and those closest to him OLIVERSACKS: 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 acclaimed documentarian Ric Burns, OLIVER SACKS: HIS OWN LIFE is a tender, joyous and life affirming portrait of a truly extraordinary man.
