Just months after the passing of his father, Star Trek legend Leonard Nimoy, Adam Nimoy asked Vulcan fans if they wouldn’t mind chipping in a little to a crowdfunding campaign that would let him work on a documentary he promised his father he would make.
Fans did indeed help Nimoy, to the tune of more than $660,000, and now the fruit of that fundraising and production work by Nimoy has opened the door for the premiere of “For the Love of Spock.”
The documentary, narrated by the actor who currently plays Spock, Zachary Quinto, features interviews with a number of actors and others who worked with Nimoy over the years, including his estranged longtime friend William Shatner.
The documentary itself will be shown at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday in New York City, according to Variety, and will get a second screening on April 18.
In the meantime, take a look at the trailer Nimoy put together to promote the documentary.
And as Nimoy always said when he signed off on his tweets, live long and prosper.
