description

A recount of the extraordinary life of author Kurt Vonnegut, and the 25-year friendship with the filmmaker who set out to document it.

Even after his death in 2007, Kurt Vonnegut remains one of the most popular literary figures of the 20th and 21st Centuries. Readers from one generation to the next, the world over, continue to find their lives transformed by Vonnegut's comic and cosmic insights in his bestselling books Cat’s Cradle, Slaughterhouse-Five, Breakfast of Champions, and Mother Night, among others. In 1982, a young filmmaker wrote a letter to his literary idol, proposing a documentary on the author’s life and work. Kurt Vonnegut soon met with Robert Weide and authorized the production. That was 39 years ago. Nearly four decades in the making, this is the definitive documentary covering Vonnegut's extraordinary life and work.
