Documentary Announced about Robin Williams’ Battle with LBD

Directed by Tylor Norwood, Robin’s Wish is an intimate portrait of Robin Williams throughout his unknown journey with LBD, with deeply personal stories from some of those closest to him, including his wife, Susan Schneider Williams, who bravely came forward to publicly reveal the findings of Robin’s autopsy. The first major film about a person with LBD, Robin’s Wish tells the story of what people living with LBD are really struggling with. Explaining the movie’s title and Williams’ main “wish,” Schneider Williams said the Oscar winner “wanted to help all of us be less afraid.” The movie will be released directly to on-demand services on September 1, 2020. Visit the LBDA website to watch the official trailer.

We are also thrilled to hear that the LBDA is working with the producers of the documentary and experts from LBDA Research Centers of Excellence around the country to put together a more educational version of the film, expected by end of year. We look forward to bringing this educational version of the film to the local Michigan community in some capacity in early 2021.
