2017 OMSI Sci Fi Film Fest Selection
For The Love of Spock celebrates the life and career of Star Trek's Mr. Spock and the actor who played him, Leonard Nimoy, in a never-before-seen way: through the eyes of his son and director Adam Nimoy. This 2016 documentary includes interviews with cast, crew and people connected with Star Trek, fans at conventions, as well as personal memories. A well-publicized Kickstarter campaign raised over $600,000 of the film's budget making it one of the more successful crowdfunded projects of 2015.
For The Love of Spock includes appearances by William Shatner, George Takei, Walter Koenig, Nichelle Nichols, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Jim Parsons, Jason Alexander, Neil deGrasse Tyson and J.J. Abrams.
"This film nimbly straddles biography and "Trek" valentine (Adam is a longtime television director), but also recounts the fraught if ultimately devoted ties between Adam and Leonard. " Andy Webster, New York Times
