PN 13: “Life, Animated” director Roger Ross Williams

Oscar-winning director Roger Ross Williams talks about his career and his new film “Life, Animated” about an autistic boy who learns to communicate through Disney cartoons. Williams was the first African-American director to win an Oscar in 2010 for his documentary short “Music by Prudence.” His acceptance speech is memorable for being interrupted by his disgruntled producer. In this interview, he talks about that experience as well as his first feature film “God Loves Uganda” about American evangelicals fomenting homophobia in Africa.
