  • Synopsis

    London-born Oliver Sacks was a man of extremes. In his youth, he was a self-destructive, bodybuilding biker struggling with drug addiction and his own sexuality. In his maturity, he became a pioneering neurologist and the 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, OLIVER SACKS: 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 Ric Burns, OLIVER SACKS: HIS OWN LIFE is a tender, joyous and life affirming portrait of a truly extraordinary man.
