"A Brief History of Time" is a 1991 American documentary film about the physicist Stephen Hawking, directed by Errol Morris. The title derives from Hawking's bestselling book A Brief History of Time, but whereas the book is an explanation of cosmology, the film is a biography of Hawking's life, featuring interviews with family members, colleagues, and even his childhood nanny. The music is by Morris' collaborator, Philip Glass.
