Voyage of Time


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

Part of the 2018 Next Wave Festival

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 LifeDays 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. Alongside these ecstatic images of destruction and renewal, the Wordless Music Orchestra and Chorus perform the exultant sounds of Bach, Beethoven, Mahler, and others.
