This special event is a conversation with filmmaker, biographer, and Kurt Vonnegut’s personal friend, Robert B. Weide, incorporating extended clips from a work-in-progress version of his long-awaited film, Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time.

More than 11 years after his death, Kurt Vonnegut—who was born and raised in Indianapolis—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 CradleSlaughterhouse-Five, Breakfast of Champions, Mother Night, God Bless You Mr. Rosewater, and on and on. Amazingly, all of Vonnegut’s works remain in print, and his popularity shows no sign of waning. Yet to-date, there has been no definitive film documentary covering his extraordinary life and work. For over 30 years, film and TV producer, director, and personal friend, Robert Weide, has been working to correct that oversight. Weide will be giving a sneak preview of several extended clips from the work-in-progress, as he discusses his 36-year odyssey to complete the film.

The event is presented as part of Granfalloon: A Kurt Vonnegut Convergence, an initiative of The Arts & Humanities Council of Indiana University.  (2K DCP presentation)
