Voyage of Time
Nov 16—Nov 17, 2018
 
Film | Music

Directed by Terrence Malick
Wordless Music Orchestra
Presented in association with Wordless Music

 

A psychedelic supernova explodes across the cosmos; electricorange lava erupts like a fireworks display; a constellation of jellyfish ripples diaphanously in an azure ocean; and across the globe— from Austin, Texas, to the Australian Outback—human life buzzes and swarms. In his breathtaking, decades-in-the-making dream project, cinematic philosopher Terrence Malick (Tree of Life, Days of Heaven) presents an awe-inspiring vision of Earth: an elemental wonderland where the process of creation that began with the Big Bang never really ended. These ecstatic images are presented alongside the exultant sounds of Bach, Beethoven, and Mahler, performed by the Wordless Music Orchestra and Chorus, alongside live narration by Lily James.

ARTICLE
Where to Begin with Terrence Malick
Malick’s visionary films, diverse in both content and form, pose existential questions about the nature of human relationships, our ‘place in the enormity of the universe,’ and the origins of life itself.

ARTICLE
The Not-So-Secret Life of Terrence Malick
A once intensely private figure, Malick resists the notion that his films are representative of his personal upbringing. While parallels between Malick’s work and life exist, broader, more universal interrogations tie his filmography together.

“Malick’s rapturous images of what could be primordial biological events or celestial spectacles... are endowed with a primal beauty that seems to owe nothing to human perception or creation.”
