ERROL MORRIS IN PERSON!

Rarely screened since its original release, A Brief History of Time examines the life and work of Stephen Hawking, the physicist who has spent much of his life in a wheelchair, yet managed feats of the intellect often compared to Einstein’s. In this adaptation of Hawking’s book about the origins of the universe, Morris weaves together graphics, interviews and archival material. Writing in Newsweek, David Ansen called it, “an elegant, inspirational and mysterious movie. Morris turns abstract ideas into haunting images.”
