“I had the incredible feeling that I was possessed by the spirit of Robin Williams.” Filmmaker/Performer Roger Kabler
(Beverly, MA January 12, 2023) Being Robin, a non-fiction movie described as “a love letter to Robin Williams” by filmmaker/performer Roger Kabler, will be shown at The Cabot in Beverly, MA on Saturday, February 18th at 7:30 pm. Kabler says “Shortly after Robin’s passing, I was overcome by the feeling that I was possessed by his spirit. It was a remarkable experience that I still can’t explain. I made this movie as a sort of biography, which was pretty wild – and to try to understand what happened to me. ”
Described as “a giddy, unstoppable outpouring of free association, scatology, neediness, mawkishness, and comic genius,” by film critic Peter Keough, Being Robin tells Kabler’s story through archival footage, narration, and re-enactment of actual events.
