About Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut is a renowned author who took an unflinching look at the world, tempered with a satirical eye and sardonic sense of humor. In a career spanning over 50 years, Vonnegut published 14 novels, three short story collections, five plays, and five works of non-fiction. He is most famous for his darkly satirical, best-selling novel Slaughterhouse-Five, which turned 50 years old in 2019.

Watch Long Walk To Forever

In this short film based on the Kurt Vonnegut short story of the same name we meet a girl named Catharine and her long-time friend, Newt. The two had grown up next door to each other, “on the fringe of a city, near fields and woods and orchards, within sight of a lovely bell tower that belonged to a school for the blind.” Vonnegut tells the simplest of love stories illustrating the theme of natural response and listening to one’s heart. One foot in front of the other, on the way to forever. Produced and directed by Jessica Hester in 2014.
