As an adolescent enthralled by Kurt Vonnegut’s novel Slaughterhouse-Five, Robert Weide wrote a letter to the author, proposing to make a documentary about him. 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.

We we love it:

'This archive-packed doc about the cult author has been made with real love and care, and it is evident in every frame; the emotions run deep. Co-director Robert Weide's 30+ year friendship with Vonnegut is the spine and heart of the film, and it offers a thoroughly compelling portrait of the man, his life and his work.' - Paul Gallagher, GFT Programme Manager
