The Wish Heard Around the World

Join GlobeDocs for a screening of BATKID BEGINS.  On November 15th, 2013, a 5-year-old boy fighting leukemia transformed the city of San Francisco and the nation for a day. The Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation helped Miles Scott become a superhero for a day -- BatKid -- and more than a billion people took to social media to cheer him on, including President Obama. In all, the #SfBatKid and #BatKid hashtags reached more than 1.84 Billion people on Twitter and Instagram. This wish and this little caped crusader resonated with so many people and there has never been anything quite like it in the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Following the screening there will be a Q&A with Charlotte Beattie, Chief Executive Officer, Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  The conversation will be moderated by Boston Globe Film Critic, Loren King.
