Need to smile? Then watch this trailer for the Batkid documentary

07.29.2014

Do you remember hearing about Miles Scott aka Batkid? Scott has been battling leukemia for most of his life, and the five-year-old's Make-A-Wish was to be Batman for one day. The foundation granted Scott's wish last November, but they didn't expect so many people to help with the planned event once news of it went viral.

Thousands of people helped turn San Fransisco into Gotham, and cheered Batkid on as he fought crime with Batman. It's one of the most heartwarming things I've ever seen, and something I think of whenever I start to lose faith in humanity.

A documentary about Scott's adventures is being produced called BATKID BEGINS from filmmaker Dana Nachman, and the first trailer has been released online. BATKID BEGINS is being funded through Indiegogo, and with 22 days left, is almost halfway to its goal of $100,000. If you want to contribute towards BATKID BEGINS, head over to the Indiegogo page for the project, where you can also learn more about the upcoming documentary.

That is pretty incredible though. And the first time San Fran's bridge hasn't been destroyed!

Why?

I loved the story of bat boy, I grew up in SF and lost my best friend to leukemia and would love to donate some of my limited income to a worthy cause, but the donations are towards producing the film and they don't say what they'll do with the revenue of the final product. I would much rather my money go toward HELPING more kids like bat boy and not a documentary. My money is going to the city of hope hospital or make a wish.

I live in the San Francisco area, and was there for Miles' great day. This truly was an amazing day for humanity.

That's really sweet. Just goes to show that goodness still exists in this crazy world. If you want to see a other way Batman brings kids hope, check out the Batmobile documentary on The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray. It starts out as a standard documentary about Batman's ride, but becomes something much more.
