Did I join them? hell no, I put on my comfy clothes, grabbed a gal pal and headed to the trendy sights of Shoreditch to attend the Valentine’s Day edition of Block Party Cinema which put on a special screening of the 1993 classic ‘Poetic Justice’ starring Janet Jackson and Tupac Shakur.

DOGWOOF is delighted to announce the UK Home Entertainment release of LIFE, ANIMATED, the inspiring and heart-warming story of Owen Suskind, a young boy with autism, and how the world of Disney helped him learn language and to make sense of the world around him – bringing him back to the family who feared he was lost to them forever. Directed by Academy Award® winning director Roger Ross Williams (God Loves Uganda), adapted from his close friend Ron Suskind’s best-selling book – Life Animated, A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes and Autism, the film follows a seminal year in Owen’s life. Looking back at the transformational journey that took him from a silent, withdrawn, physically challenged young boy, to the confident, independent and loving young man he is today, the film shows how a love of Disney movies brought him back into the world; making friends, growing up, graduating, and falling in love for the first time. Premiering at Sundance, where it won a Directing Award for Roger Ross Williams, Life, Animated has been released worldwide to an enthusiastic reception from critics, awards bodies and organisations working with and researching autism.
