Oliver Sacks: His Own Life  (Movie / Film)

Valley Court Park, East Lansing

Advanced registration recommended

A closeted champion weightlifter, haunted by vice, becomes a poet of contemporary neuroscience. Months before his death, Oliver Sacks sat down with legendary director Ric Burns to tell his life story, in his own words. A story that includes battles with drug addiction, self-hating homophobia, and a research establishment that failed to understand him. His story ultimately helped redefine our understanding of the human brain and the diversity of the human experience.

This film is part of the series Field of View: An Art x Science Film Series.

Presented by the MSU Museum, MSU Science Gallery, and the City of East Lansing, Field of View: An Art x Science Films Series features a collection of eight thought-provoking documentaries exploring humankind's understanding of the world.
