He was a talented actor and musician, as well as an ambitious photographer who documented the nightlife and dark alleys of Los Angeles. He also starred in independent films, including lavish Star Trek blockbusters. He was also an avid cineaste—his love of cinema was awakened by Taxi Driver, which he watched with his parents. Having dreamed of making his own film, he watched directors at work and in the end wrote a script—but he didn’t manage to see it through. Anton Yelchin was killed at the age of 27 in a foolish accident when he was crushed by his own car. The human race has been cheated, said Martin Landau about the tragic death of his young friend. I don't ever want him to be forgotten. Yelchin always gave his all, whether it was acting, partying, or performing on stage with his band. He lived a full life. Sounds cliche? Not in the case of a young man who was aware that he had less time than others: He had cystic fibrosis, although he hid it from the world. Garret Price’s documentary takes a look at the young actor’s life based on his diaries, notes and letters, unique video footage, and the accounts of his parents, colleagues, and friends. The result is a poignant, intimate, and tender portrait.
