CCA presents – Celebrating Oliver Sacks with Ric Burns:

Filmmaker Ric Burns remembers the life of the great writer and neurologist Oliver Sacks, a life containing more drama than a Dickens novel, in an online conversation with Paul Barnes. Burns will talk about the work and life of perhaps our culture’s most beloved popular scientist, a man who spent decades studying and documenting those whose neurological peculiarities—sleeping sickness, Tourette’s, autism—revealed much about our own fickle brains.

About the film OLIVER SACKS: MY OWN LIFE: Ric Burns’ documentary visited with Sacks during the final year before his death in 2015. Sacks childhood unfolded during the destruction of World War II, he was hounded by a powerfully overbearing mother and his brother suffered from severe mental illness. But rather than be ruined, Sacks channeled his demons into projects that shined light on the human condition. In remembering the great scientist, Burns celebrates the ways in which he gave us the gifts of tolerance, curiosity and a deep appreciation for the mysteries of consciousness.
