ComingSoon is excited to debut a clip from the upcoming documentary Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time. IFC releases the film in theaters and VOD on November 19. Vonnegut passed away in 2007 and would’ve turned 99 today.

“A dazzling, worthy tribute to Vonnegut and a compelling introduction for the uninitiated. The feature documentary – the first of its kind on Vonnegut – is a deep, immersive dive into the author’s upbringing and his creative output,” says the synopsis. “It spans his childhood in Indianapolis, his experience as a Prisoner of War in World War II, his marriage, family, and divorce, his early careers as a publicist for General Electric and a car salesman, and his long years as a struggling writer, leading to eventual superstardom in 1969 following the publication of his lightning-bolt anti-war novel Slaughterhouse-Five.”

Check out the Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time clip below:

Directed by filmmaker Robert Weide (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Lenny Bruce: Swear to Tell the Truth), the documentary took 39 years to complete, and shooting began in 1988. Not only does it serve as a biography of the late American author, but it also examines “the impact of a writer’s legacy on his own life, extending far beyond the printed page.”
