Nationally-acclaimed Batman documentary coming to Charlotte
March 6, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Director Brett Culp is bringing his nationally-acclaimed documentary, Legends of the Knight, to Charlotte for one night only on Thursday, March 6, 2014. The film features remarkable individuals who have been inspired to lead better lives by the story of Batman.
Culp has already seen people around the country be moved and inspired by the film. “I think what people are going to see when they watch these interviews about people who loved this character as a child, and how that affected the trajectory of their lives, is that loving this character is a wonderful, good thing,” he said.
Along with Culp, who will introduce the film and have a Question and Answer Session at the end, several cast members of the movie will be in Charlotte for the event, including Lenny Robinson, a man who has devoted much of life to inspiring sick children in hospitals while dressed as Batman. Additionally and in keeping with his personal mission, Robinson plans to arrive at Levine Children’s Hospital in his $300,000 custom-made Batmobile and visit with children before the film’s screening.
Southeast Psych, a Charlotte-based psychology practice, served as executive producers for the film and has been instrumental in bringing Brett Culp and the film to Charlotte. All proceeds from the evening will go to The Council for Children’s Rights, Urban Ministry Center, and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Southeast Psych CEO Dr. Craig Pohlman said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with these three great non-profit organizations that do so much good for our community. It should be an incredible night.”
Legends of the Knight was filmed in 15 cities across the United States and features interviews with such Batman authorities as Michael Uslan, the executive producer of every Batman film since 1989, including The Dark Knight and the upcoming Zack Snyder film, “Batman vs. Superman.”
Cary Friedman, author of Wisdom from the Batcave: How to Live a Super, Heroic Life, said of Culp’s film, “It’s such a poignant, powerful kind of presentation. You can’t help but walk away from the movie with some sense of ‘I’ve got to incorporate this into my life. I could do things. This could be me.’ I think there can be no greater accomplishment.”
The film begins at 7:00pm at the Epicenter Studio Movie Grill in Uptown Charlotte and concludes with a Question and Answer session with Brett Culp immediately afterwards. Tickets are available to the public through southeastpsych.com/wearebatman.
