A dazzling, worthy tribute to the beloved American author, recounting his extraordinary life and the 25-year friendship with the filmmaker who set out to document it.
As an adolescent enthralled by his novel Slaughterhouse-Five, Robert Weide wrote a letter to Kurt Vonnegut, proposing to make a documentary about the author. Surprisingly, Vonnegut agreed, and the two struck up a decades-long collaboration that grew into an enduring friendship. Filled with rare archival footage and interviews with family, colleagues and Vonnegut himself, Weide’s portrait offers a deep, intimate look into the life and work of one of the giants of American literature.
