Hi everyone, my name is Sam McDermott. For my capstone I am going to be showing various Robin Williams films throughout the month of March. I will also be talking about Bipolar Depression before the movie and will be staying afterwards if you have any questions about it. This is purely to raise awareness, so it doesn’t cost anything. Every movie will start at 3:15 and will be shown in Mr. K’s movie room.
