About William Shatner: You Can Call Me Bill
From make-believe starship captain to a real-life rocketman, William Shatner has led one of the most unique and best-lived lives on the planet. And while the actor William Shatner may be recognizable around the globe, the man behind the masks is even more interesting than the iconic roles he's played. Acclaimed documentarian Alexandre O. Philippe (Leap of Faith: William Friedkin on The Exorcist, Memory: The Origins of Alien, 78/52: Hitchcock’s Shower Scene) excels in producing this fascinating look at one of the most illustrious actors of our time. [96 min; documentary; English]

Director Alexandre O. Philippe and star William Shatner will be in-person at the Cinema for a Q&A after the film. Beginning at 6pm, come and have your photo taken on the red carpet!

"Truly an intimate portrait of William Shatner: his passions, hopes, and concerns for the world he’ll eventually leave behind." — Alan Ng, Film Threat

"You Can Call Me Bill cuts engagingly between the wit and wisdom of William Shatner and a wealth of footage from his career." — Owen Gleiberman, Variety
