Do we as a society have the capacity to live up to STAR TREK’s optimistic, inclusive vision for humanity’s future? That is the central question in THE TRUTH IS IN THE STARS, a feature documentary in which the original Captain Kirk, William Shatner, examines the impact of STAR TREK on popular culture and human innovation, discovery and creativity.
The film’s narrative is driven by exclusive one-on-one interviews that Shatner conducts himself with famous and brilliant innovators, scientists, astronauts, and celebrities as he attempts to uncover just how influential the groundbreaking series has been for the world’s greatest minds.
From the STAR TREK exhibition at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York where the USS Enterprise is on display, to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, to the hallowed halls of Cambridge, in the UK, Shatner takes us on a lyrical journey to find out whether art has imitated life in the years since the world-renowned STAR TREK television series premiered in 1966, envisioning a promising and more hopeful future for the world.
This Blu-ray features the official THE TRUTH IS IN THE STARS trailer, surround sound as well as English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired.
