This new documentary affectionately reveals the life and work of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (1922-2007) through interviews filmed over three decades with the celebrated author\humorist himself. Unstuck in Time follows Vonnegut from his childhood in Indiana, through his traumatic wartime experiences in Dresden, his postwar job with General Electric, the explosion of counter-culture fame that came with the publication of Slaughterhouse-Five, his two marriages, and, his late-in-life stint as an essayist.
