About the Movie
You may be familiar with the recently released feature movie Robin’s Wish reveals the true story about Robin Williams and his battle with undiagnosed Lewy body dementia (LBD), receiving wide public acclaim.
From that movie, Lewy Body Dementia Association (LBDA) and the producers of Robin’s Wish created a 45-minute documentary adaptation, SPARK: Robin Williams and his Battle with Lewy Body Dementia.
LBDA is using this educational film to disseminate information about Robin Williams and his battle with undiagnosed Lewy body dementia (LBD) to promote community and professional awareness and education to those affected by Lewy body dementia. This new and fascinating adaptation delves deeper into the disease, its biology, myriad of clinical symptoms and its impact on both the person with LBD and the primary caregiver.
