For the Love of Spock
Mr. Spock is one of film and television’s most iconic and resonant characters. Logical, detached and a keen observer of human emotion – Spock’s half-human half-Vulcan traits endow him with a compelling and enigmatic allure. In this intimate and personal documentary, Leonard’s son Adam Nimoy explores the creation, evolution, and universal impact of Mr. Spock. Featuring never-before-seen footage and interviews with William Shatner, George Takei, JJ Abrams, Neil deGrasse Tyson and many others, For the Love of Spock is a revealing portrait of a timeless character and the extraordinary man and artist who shaped him.
