The life and career of Steven Hawking is chronicled in A Brief History of Time

In the 1991 documentary film A Brief History of Time, filmmaker Errol Morris (The Fog of War) turns his camera on one of the most fascinating men in the world: the pioneering astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who is afflicted by a debilitating motor neuron disease that has left him without a voice or the use of his limbs.

An adroitly crafted tale of personal adversity, professional triumph, and cosmological inquiry, Morris’s documentary examines the way the collapse of Hawking’s body has been accompanied by the untrammeled broadening of his imagination.

Telling the man’s incredible story through the voices of his colleagues and loved ones, while making dynamically accessible some of the theories in Hawking’s best-selling book of the same name, A Brief History of Time »
