The documentary strand at KFF 2017 is admittedly a tad thin, but Life, Animated is a worthy flag-bearer for the genre and is one of the 'must-sees' at this years festival.

On the face of it, it is the story of Owen, an autistic teenager who finds a meaning in life and a means of communication through Disney animations. It is just as much about those around Owen who must help him navigate his way around this difficult and confusing world.

This will be a charity screening in aid of ICAAN, a West Cumbrian group that does superb work in supporting families of children with autism.

This is an unsentimental and powerful coming of age tale offering a moving insight into the experience of autism and the transformative possibilities of cinema
