George Takei reveals his remarkable life in Jennifer Kroot's delightful, incisive TO BE TAKEI. From his roots in Japanese-American internment camps, the actor-turned-activist reveals the ways racism affected him well into his acting career. Now 76, nine years after formally coming out, Takei and his husband, Brad, have become the poster couple for marriage equality. Whether dishing on William Shatner or parodying Tim Hardaway's now-infamous comments, Takei's presence in popular culture remains as fresh and necessary as ever.
POST-SCREENING RECEPTION: DGA Atrium

IN COLLABORATION WITH: GLAAD, Japanese American National Museum
