Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time is a deep dive into one of the greatest writers in American history. The film spans the author’s childhood, his time as a prisoner of war during World War II, and his life after the war. The documentary serves as more than just a retelling of Vonnegut’s life, however. It is a journey that began in 1988 when director Robert Weide first wrote to his idol to propose the idea. The trailer gives an idea of the friendship and bond that formed over the decades.
The film also examines what role the director played in Vonnegut’s life. “I was always filming on and off with him over the years,” says Weide in the trailer. Vonnegut died on April 11, 2007. The documentary follows Weide’s odyssey as he examines the impact of Vonnegut’s legacy on his own life, extending far beyond the printed page. Weide produced and wrote Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time and he co-directed with Don Argott.
Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time comes to theaters and VOD November 19
