There have been some fantastic documentaries about the life of Leonard Nimoy over the past few years. The obvious example is the wonderful look at the life of Nimoy in For The Love of Spock. For The Love of Spock was created and directed by Leonard Nimoy’s son Adam Nimoy and is available now on iTunes. The new documentary is titled Remembering Lenoard: His Live, Legacy and Battle with COPD and was made by Julie Nimoy and David Knight. Julie Nimoy is Leonard’s daughter and David is her husband.
Where For The Love of Spock focused on the aspects of Leonard Nimoy’s life connected to Star Trek Remembering Leonard: His Live, Legacy and Battle with COPD will focus on Leonard Nimoy’s life as a whole. Specifically the documentary will focus on the diesease that took Nimoy’s life, COPD.
COPD stands for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The disease is often the result of smoking. The trailer for the new documentary takes a look not only at how the disease and the battle with it affected Leonard Nimoy, but how it also affected his family.
Nimoy’s death was a horrible loss, and it may be hard for many to look back at what led up to it. Raising awareness about COPD and the other negative affects of smoking can also help many people however.
You can see Remembering Leonard: His Live, Legacy and Battle with COPD nationwide on PBS on November 1st.
