KURT VONNEGUT: UNSTUCK IN TIME

2021 (USA) 127 minutes

Directed by: Robert B. Weide

Almost eight years after his death, 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 his comic and cosmic insights, on display in such bestselling books as Cat’s Cradle, Slaughterhouse-Five, Breakfast of Champions, Mother Night, God Bless You Mr. Rosewater, and on and on. Amazingly, all of Vonnegut’s work remains in print, and his popularity shows no sign of waning. 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. Weide thought it would take a few months to raise the needed financing, and figured a film could be completed within the year. In reality, filming began in 1988 and continued until shortly before the author’s death in 2007. Robert Weide is best known for winning multiple Emmy Awards for his direction of Curb Your Enthusiasm
