Oliver Sacks : His Own Words

Oliver Sacks: His Own Life explores the life and work of the legendary neurologist and storyteller, as he shares intimate details of his battles with drug addiction, homophobia, and a medical establishment that accepted his work only decades after the fact. Sacks was a fearless explorer of unknown mental worlds who helped redefine our understanding of the brain and mind, the diversity of human experience, and our shared humanity.

The film will be released in theaters nationwide by Zeitgeist Films in association with Kino Lorber, starting May 2020, and will broadcast on PBS American Masters in 2021
