THE VOYAGE OF TIME is a celebration of the earth, displaying the whole of time, from the birth of the universe to its final collapse. This film examines all that went to prepare the miracle that stands before us now. After the nebulae and supernovae, after the lands of lava and smoke, after the elaboration of the first cells, first fish, first amphibians and reptiles, this great wonder! In words and with music, we are encouraged to view it with gratitude and awe. Science and spirit, birth and death, the grand cosmos and the minute life systems of our planet—all come together in Malick’s most original film.

Terrence Malick

Born in 1943, Terrence Frederick Malick is an American film director, screenwriter and producer. Malick began his career as part of the New Hollywood film-making wave with the films “Badlands” (1973) and “Days of Heaven” (1978), before a lengthy hiatus. He returned
to directing with films such as The Thin Red Line (1998) and “The Tree of Life” (2011), being awarded the Golden Bear at the 49th Berlin International Film Festival and the Palme d’Or at the 64th Cannes Film Festival, respectively.
Malick’s films have been noted for exploring themes such as individual transcendence, nature, and conflicts between reason and instinct. They are typically marked by broad philosophical and spiritual overtones, the use of meditative voice-overs from individual characters, and an emphasis on cinematography and experimental post-production techniques
over plot and character development. The stylistic elements of the director’s work have inspired divided opinions among film scholars and audiences.
