A trailer for COPD: Highly Illogical — A Special Tribute to Leonard Nimoy has been released.
The documentary, produced by Nimoy’s daughter Julie Nimoy and her husband David Knight, will “educate viewers about COPD through Nimoy’s and others’ personal stories of courage, as well as the latest information about treatments and the quest for a cure.”
John de Lancie, best-known to Trek fans for his role as Q, will be narrating the documentary.
Nimoy was diagnosed with COPD in 2013, and spend his last years seeking to educate people about the “common but often undiagnosed disease,” via social and traditional media.
“Generations of science fiction fans know my father, Leonard Nimoy, as his iconic character Mr. Spock on the Starship Enterprise,” said Julie Nimoy. “His message, ‘Live Long and Prosper,’ has resonated through the generations and become a siren call for those of like mind.
“After Dad’s untimely passing due to complications related to COPD, my husband and I committed ourselves to continuing his message through a very special project — a documentary dedicated to my father titled COPD: Highly Illogical—A Special Tribute to Leonard Nimoy.”
The documentary is being funded through donations, and has reached the halfway mark of the $500,000 needed. To learn more and to donate, head to the website COPDLLAP.com, located here.
