FREE SCREENING: Oliver Sacks: His Own Life

Description

We’re proud to partner with our friends at The Betsy Hotel on Miami Beach & FIU to offer a special presentation of the documentary, OLIVER SACKS: IN HIS OWN WORDS.
Thanks to their support, we’re able to offer this film to you for FREE on Monday, April 5th @7:00pm (EST)!

 

A month after receiving a fatal diagnosis in January 2015, Oliver Sacks sat down for a series of filmed interviews in his apartment in New York City. For eighty hours, surrounded by family, friends, and notebooks from six decades of thinking and writing about the brain, he talked about his life and work, his abiding sense of wonder at the natural world, and the place of human beings within it. Drawing on these deeply personal reflections, as well as nearly two dozen interviews with close friends, family members, colleagues and patients, and archival material from every point in his life, this film is the story of a beloved doctor and writer who redefined our understanding of the brain and mind.
