Watch how the wish of a 5- year old boy fighting leukemia inspired a city, and thousands of volunteers, to come together to make his wish come true. BATKID BEGINS: THE WISH HEARD AROUND THE WORLD takes you back to November 15, 2013, the day San Francisco was transformed into Gotham City and Myles into an adorable mini-caped crusader. More than a billion people took to the internet to cheer him on and the story of Miles Scott became one of the biggest feel good news stories ever. BATKID BEGINS: BATKID BEGINS: THE WISH HEARD AROUND THE WORLD explores how this massive event was put together and what happens when a story goes unintentionally viral.Kyle Smith of the New York Post says, “The film isn’t really about young Miles (whose cancer is today in remission) but about all of us, about our bottomless capacity to do good and our shared love of little kids, big dreams, and Batman.” [2015, USA, Runtime: 87 minutes, Rated PG]
At the conclusion of the film, a representative from Make- A-Wish will be on hand to discuss the organization and the process involved in granting wishes.
