It balances unprecedented access to the day-to-day life of George and his husband/business partner Brad Takei with George's fascinating personal journey, from his childhood in a Japanese American internment camp, to his iconic and groundbreaking role as Sulu on "Star Trek," through his rise as an internet phenomenon with over 6-million Facebook likes. The film shows what it truly means TO BE TAKEI. ***Official selection at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival*** ***Official selection at the 2014 Hot Docs Film Festival*** GEORGE TAKEI QUICK BIO Best known for playing Sulu on the original Star Trek TV series and six movies that followed, George Takei is unlikely social media royalty. Unofficially dubbed the King of Facebook, he counts over 5 million fans in his online empire — including Trekkies, Howard Stern listeners, and the LGBTQ community — who devour his quirky mix of kitten jokes, Star Trek references, heartfelt messages, and sci-fi/fantasy memes. An outspoken advocate for civil rights, Takei has used his unmistakable baritone in several satiric PSAs, including one in response to Tennessee’s infamous “Don’t Say Gay” bill that encourages viewers to say, "It’s OK to be Takei." His current projects include the musical Allegiance, drawn from his experience of growing up in Japanese American internment camps during World War II, and the recently published Oh Myyy! There Goes the Internet.
