Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind
Documentary screening and discussion on January 30 in Toronto.
Robin Williams was was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia, and took his life in 2014. For those in the Toronto area, this should be a very interesting event.
I’ve got my tickets, and am looking forward to the event. If you go, look for the giant wild-haired Viking-like chap — that’s me, and please drop by to say hello.
For those unable to attend, I understand that the movie is available from HBO On Demand, worldwide.
Strength to all! Timothy Hudson
From the event website:
Truly one-of-a-kind, Robin Williams was a tremendously gifted performer who could put a smile on anyone’s face. This thoughtful and moving documentary celebrates the comedian’s extraordinary life and career, revealing the devastating challenges that shaped him. Previously unseen footage gives us invaluable insight into the man’s creative process as well as the toll his struggles with mental health took on him before his tragic death in 2014. Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind is a love letter to a unique and irrepressible comic talent who left us far too soon.
“A film that looks beyond the Robin Williams we lost, to give us back the Robin Williams we loved.” – The Playlist
“A fitting tribute, and a contemplation of many layers.” – CNN
