A new indie documentary, “For The Love Of Spock,” will make its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival today, featuring a panel discussion with the film’s director, Leonard Nimoy’s son.
For the film, Adam Nimoy interviewed William Shatner, George Takei and Walter Koenig, among others. Zachary Quinto, who portrays Spock in the modern Star Trek films, will narrate the documentary and joins Nimoy on the panel.
Released in time for the 50th anniversary of the original series, the film looks at the enduring impression left by actor Leonard Nimoy and his portrayal of Spock in ‘Star Trek’.
The project was funded by Trekkie fans who donated $662,000 to a successful Kickstarter campaign last year. It will be available to stream later this year.
For The Love of Spock is a tribute to his father, who died last February, and ensures the character’s legacy will forever “live long and prosper.”
