This Documentary About the Late Leonard Nimoy's STAR TREK Legacy Needs Your Help!

Few performances have been burned more indelibly into our pop cultural consciousness than Leonard Nimoy's legendary inhabiting of Star Trek's half-human, half-Vulcan Starfleet space officer Spock.

In honor of Nimoy, who passed away this past February at the age of 83, Adam Nimoy — the late actor's son — is looking to complete For the Love of Spock, a documentary that explores the forever-enduring legacy of this richly iconic character his father proudly and profoundly played across various decades, mediums, and projects. For the Love of Spock, which took shape last year as an intended collaboration between father and son before the former's passing, looks into the making of Star Trek with a specific emphasis on the "birth and evolution" of Nimoy's fabled character. The film also features narration by Zachary Quinto, who assumed the famous role (and pointy ears) of Mr. Spock in J.J. Abrams' recent movie reboot.

The younger Nimoy has launched a Kickstarter campaign to finish the film, which has only five days to meet its $600,000 goal, 75% of which has already been raised. Whether you're a Trekkie, Trekker, or just a longtime admirer of this elegant man, donate here if you can and help this beautiful love letter from son to father take full fruition.

THE HOLDOUTS, from Colombian filmmaker Ramon Campos Iriarte (@RamonIriarte), made its world premiere at Tribeca N.O.W. at #Tribeca2017. THE HOLDOUTS is a story charged with urgency and a strong personal element. The Western hemisphere's oldest civil war is still going strong in the jungles of Colombia. The National Liberation Army (ELN) — a Marxist military organization — has been fighting for revolution since 1964, and with the FARC having declared a ceasefire, the ELN is today the last active guerrilla army in the Americas. Iriarte has been covering the Colombian civil war for over a decade and was compelled to make this documentary after finding his grandfather's kidnap diary from 30 years ago. Watch it now on our site. Link in bio.
