Description BAM and Wordless Music present Terrence Malick’s Voyage of Time with a live orchestral and choral performance of its powerful score. Voyage of Time is a stunning mixture of abstract visual fantasia and science documentary, capturing and envisioning the life cycle of the universe. The film is a 90-minute expansion on the notorious “birth of the universe” segment from Malick’s acclaimed 2011 film The Tree of Life. With Voyage of Time, Malick once again showcases his genius for stunning imagery, which is combined with mesmerizing stream of consciousness narration and the transcendent music of Bach, Beethoven, Mahler, Poulenc, Giya Kancheli, Keith Jarrett, and others.
