"A Brief History of Time" is a 1991 documentary film about the physicist Stephen Hawking, directed by Errol Morris. Its title derives from Hawking's bestselling book of the same name, 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 his childhood nanny. The music is by Morris's long-time collaborator Philip Glass.
