Hawking

UK, 1989 (MIFF 1990, The Media Show)

The Media Show goes on location with the making of the film version of A Brief History Of Time, Stephen Hawking's best-seller about the origins of the universe. Directed by Errol Morris (Thin Blue Line) and produced by Stephen Spielberg, the film is undoubtedly one of the most ambitious undertakings in the history of documentary.
