About the Show
Remembering Leonard Nimoy is a loving and very personal tribute to the life and career of the prolific actor and director who is best known for playing Spock in Star Trek. Produced and directed by his daughter Julie and son-in-law David Knight, the film reveals stories from his childhood growing up in Boston in the 1930s and 1940s, anecdotes from his early career in Hollywood, and a snapshot of Nimoy’s big break-out role on the popular sci-fi series Star Trek. It also shows how he helped raise awareness for the lung disease that eventually took his life, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Remembering Leonard Nimoy features never-before-seen home videos and personal photos, interviews with family members, and insight from medical experts who describe what COPD is, as well as its causes and symptoms.
