Voyage of Time (Brad Pitt version)
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Terrence Malick. 2017, 46 mins. DCP. Narrated by Brad Pitt. The culmination of years of filming and decades of preparation, Terrence Malick’s first work of nonfiction attempts to cinematically represent nothing less than the history of existence. From the big bang to suburban sprawl, from the evolution of the species to the devolution of the recorded image, and featuring images both captured and fabricated, Voyage of Time does not lack for ambition, yet it rests on a powerful sense of humble uncertainty in the face of the unknown. It does not have the fictional narrative elements of Malick’s The Tree of Life, to which this film was apparently once considered a companion, but it remains a spiritually close sibling. This version comprises the original IMAX cut of the film with narration recited by Brad Pitt.
