Based on Kurt Vonnegut’s modern classic, SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE is the story of Billy Pilgrim, a World War Two veteran who has come “unstuck” in time. He jumps from the days of his youth, to the strange alien world of Tralfamadore, to the firebombing of Dresden near the end of the war. Winner of the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE is one of the most fascinating and powerful science fiction films of the 1970s.
