5 Questions with Julie Nimoy and David Knight
The documentary film Remembering Leonard Nimoy is an intimate journey into Leonard Nimoy's life, legacy and his personal battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and is screening for free later this month at Joseph B. Martin Conference Center in Boston on November 29th.
Leonard's daughter Julie and her husband David Knight joined us to talk about what to expect from the screening and some great memories of her father.
Do617: First off, thank you for honoring your father in such a way, and we are profoundly sorry for your loss. This is a different kind of film than one we have seen about your father's acting, directing and educational career. What drove you to make a film about Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)?
Julie Nimoy: Thank you for your kind words about my dad. In 2014 my dad appeared on Piers Morgan Live (CNN) and announced publicly for the first time that he was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
