VOYAGE OF TIME (2016) [Special Event,Feature]

France,USA,Germany (MIFF 2017 , Special Events)
Director: Terrence Malick

'In Voyage of Time, Terrence Malick throws everything at us, and finds the wisdom in wonder … simultaneously more ambitious than any previous science or nature-oriented documentary—already a grand, even macrocosmic genre—and yet atypically humble and unstable.' – Film Comment

If Terrence Malick was going to make a film about the entire history of the universe, then this would be it. A trembling, ambiguous, glorious, almost inconceivably beautiful journey through the mysteries of cosmology, biology, humanity and everything in between, Voyage of Time showcases one of modern cinema's true masters at his most rapturous and ambitious.

More than 40 years in the making, Voyage of Time tracks the journey of life from the Big Bang to the present moment, taking in supernovas, volcanoes, amoebas, particle physics, suburban America and a whole lot more besides. Paired with narration by long-time collaborator Brad Pitt, Voyage of Time represents Malick at his most Malick – a visual poem of jaw-dropping cinematography, stunning animation and soaring music that simply has to be experienced on the largest canvas possible.

'Before your eyes is a kind of miracle, a fusion of digital imagery and photographic imagination that seems at once utterly natural and completely impossible.' – New York Times
