At the age of 22, Robert Weide wrote a letter to Kurt Vonnegut in which he proposed a documentary about the 60-year-old legendary novelist.
A new Kickstarter project aims to turn the hours of footage into a documentary called "Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time."
This is no ordinary documentary; it's one about a friendship that grew out of an attempt at a documentary.
As Weide began filming Vonnegut, including trips to the author's boyhood homes and his 60th high school reunion, the two became friends. This relationship, Weide worried, would affect the documentary.
