WORLD PREMIERE Decades in the making, Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time is an in-depth look at the writer of classic novels such as Slaughterhouse Five and Breakfast of Champions. The film covers multiple chapters of his life: his childhood in Indianapolis, his experience as a prisoner in World War II, his marriage and family, his early careers as a publicist for General Electric and a car salesman, his years as a struggling writer, and eventual superstardom. The film makes its world premiere on what would have been his 99th birthday on November 11. – Thom Powers
