In his final few months of life, the 81-year-old celebrated author, neurologist and science historian Oliver Sacks sits down with famed documentarian Ric Burns to discuss his dreams, fears, and an unshakeable curiosity with the natural world and people’s place in it.

Sacks was the inspiration behind the Robin Williams-Robert De Niro film Awakenings.

“…a movie that presents us with a man who led an eccentrically defiant, at times reckless existence that was the furthest thing from cunningly planned.”

Owen Glieberman, Variety
