Robin Williams’ final days are documented in detail in an upcoming documentary. Robin’s Wish, a new documentary based on the beloved actor, will focus on the comedian’s finals days and his battle with a deadly neurodegenerative disorder.
The trailer for the documentary has just been released and features exclusive interviews with Robin Williams’ widow, Susan Schneider Williams, as well as friends and fellow colleagues.
Robin makes various appearances through the usage of old clips and interviews. Robin’s Wish will highlight the actor’s fight against Lewy Body Dementia, which provides insight onto his heartbreaking tragedy.
"Armed with the name of a brain disease I’d never heard of, I set out on a mission to understand it, and that led me down my unchosen path of advocacy," Schneider Williams said in a press statement. "With invaluable help from leading medical experts, I saw that what Robin and I had gone through, finally made sense — our experience matched up with the science. And what I discovered along the way was bigger than me, and bigger than Robin. The full story was revealed during the making of this film and it holds the truth that Robin and I had been searching for."
The documentary is directed by Tylor Norwood and will be released by Vertical Entertainment on demand and digital on September 1, 2020.
