Funded on Kickstarter last year, filmmaker Brett Culp's new documentary Legends of the Knight, which details the lives of people inspired by Batman to overcome personal adversities, will be going on a nationwide theatrical tour to showcase the film in just a few weeks.
“At some point, every child dreams of being a superhero,” said Culp. “They put on a cape and imagine that they have the power to change the world. Along the way, many of us lose our faith that this can be true. ‘Legends of the Knight’ is a return to our childhood dreams of being a hero. Our goal is to inspire everyone on the planet who loves Batman to embody his spirit, engage with the world, and make a difference.”
Featuring interviews with Michael Uslan, executive producer of Batman and The Dark Knight; comic artist Denny O'Neil; Dr. Travis Langley – author, "Batman & Psychology", and many more, Legends of the Knight will begin its 12 city theatrical tour February 1st. The proceeds for each of the screenings will be donated to a charity in the local city.

“Human beings have always been stirred to greatness by the tales of heroes," Culp said. "We connect with Batman because he is the super hero with no super powers. Just as he has committed himself to making the world better, we can dedicate ourselves to a noble cause and do something great. This type of inspiration is a core function of storytelling in society.”
