Oliver Sacks: His Own Life

Show trailer
He dedicated his life to understanding the human brain. Now, we can experience the inner life of the charming neurologist and bestselling author Oliver Sacks himself.

'Oliver Sacks: His Own Life' is the story of the legendary neurologist, author and scientist, who would not let himself be defined by just one of those labels. Before his death in 2015, Sacks – along with friends, colleagues and former patients – sat down for an interview about a life characterised by unlimited curiosity and scientific breakthroughs – but also about his struggles with homophobia, depression and addiction. It is impossible not to be fascinated by Sacks and his unique ability to observe and describe the human mind in a way that has helped redefine our understanding of the brain and what it means to be human.
