Iowa Premiere. Part of ScreenGlow, a showcase of LGBT cinema.

Over seven decades, actor and activist George Takei boldly journeyed from a WWII internment camp, to the helm of the starship Enterprise, to the daily news feeds of five million Facebook fans. Takei's sharp eye and wicked sense of humor continue to challenge the status quo well into the twenty-first century. An official selection of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, Jennifer Kroot's delightful and incisive film follows George and his husband Brad in this playful and profound trek for life, liberty, and love.

"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." —Variety
