Oliver Sacks: His Own Life

Documentary 1h 54m 2020

AroView: A documentary exploring the life and work of the legendary neurologist and storyteller who was famously portrayed by Robin Williams in AWAKENINGS (1990).

He shares intimate details about his abandonment of his native Britain, his battles with drug addiction and homophobia, and a medical establishment that accepted his work only decades after the fact. A fearless explorer of unknown mental worlds, Dr. Sacks helped redefine our understanding of the brain and mind, the diversity of human experience, and our shared humanity.

“A moving portrait of a man taking deep stock of his life with great satisfaction and verve.” ~ L.A. Times.
