To Be Takei
Jennifer Kroot, 2014
USA | Format: HDCam | 90 minutes

From the iconic role of Sulu on Star Trek to Howard Stern and Facebook fame, George Takei’s sharp eye, coupled with his wicked sense of humor, continues to challenge the status quo well into the 21st century. As a child forced into Japanese-American internment camps, the actor-turned-activist reveals the ways that racism affected him well into his acting career. Now 76, and nine years after coming out of the closet, Takei and his husband, Brad, have become the poster couple for marriage equality, highlighting homophobia through television interviews and hilarious skits, many of which have garnered widespread attention.
