Renowned neurologist and literary giant Oliver Sacks is posthumously celebrated in this profound, highly engaging, deeply personal memoir.

A month after receiving a fatal diagnosis in January 2015, Oliver Sacks sat down with filmmaker Ric Burns for a series of filmed interviews in his apartment in New York City. For eighty hours, he talked about his life and work, battles with drug addiction, homophobia, a medical establishment that long shunned his pioneering work on cognitive disorders, and 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. (Ric Burns, 2019, USA, 1:51, NR)
