To Be Takei (feature)
Dir: Jennifer M. Kroot / 2014 / USA / 90 min / DCP
To Be Takei has been delighting audiences since it premiered at this year’s Sundance film festival. It explores the life of George Takei, from the years he spent in a Japanese internment camp as a youth, his coming out and relationship with his partner Brad, to his recent Facebook fame. Director Jennifer Kroot (It Came From Kuchar) blends interviews, film clips and scenes from the Takei’s daily life to create this charming portrait.. “A unique blend of camp and conviction, “To Be Takei” deftly showcases George Takei’s eclectic personality and wildly disparate achievements, from “Star Trek” crewmate to gay-rights activist.” raves Ronnie Scheib of Variety.
