Cinema Paradiso: Oliver Sacks His Own Life / Ric Burns

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.


Explora la vida y el trabajo del legendario neurólogo y novelista Oliver Sacks a través de sus propias experiencias, muchas de ellas relacionadas con la drogodependencia, la homofobia y un mundo medicinal que sólo aceptó su trabajo décadas después de sus investigaciones

 Sacks fue un investigador incansable del mundo de la mente humana que ayudó a construir el entendimiento actual sobre el cerebro, la diversidad de la experiencia humana y la humanidad compartida en el planeta.
