Over forty years ago filmmaker Robert Weide wrote a letter to his literary hero, to float the idea of making a documentary about his life and works. This would be the start of a lifelong friendship and creative partnership.


Robert followed Vonnegut on book tours and launches, getting to know his hero personally and waiting patiently for his documentary to get off the ground. He began filming whenever he had some spare time and money, and eventually, four decades later, his persistence has paid off in the form of this touching and unique documentary.


A love letter and deep exploration of one of America's foremost writers of all time, Kurt Vonnegut (Slaughterhouse Five). Tracing his inspiration and distinct writing voice back to his childhood and beyond, examining his prolific creative career while the filmmaker reflects on Kurt’s influence on his own life and work.

Dir: Robert B. Weide, Don Argott
