acmi shifts gear and announces major international exhibition - stanley kubrick: inside the mind of a visionary filmmaker

The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) announces a forthcoming major international exhibition, Stanley Kubrick: Inside the mind of a visionary filmmaker. 

In a major win for its new Director, Tony Sweeney, ACMI is bringing the exhibition from the Deutsches Filmmuseum, Frankfurt am Main, where it was presented in conjunction with the Christiane Kubrick/Stanley Kubrick Estate.

It is the only Australian destination for this internationally acclaimed exhibition tracing the career and films of legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick.

Stanley Kubrick: Inside the mind of a visionary filmmaker examines Kubrick's early career as a magazine photographer and follows his progression to iconic and influential filmmaker.

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to track Kubrick's near 50-year career through installations, film stills, sound, light and music. The exhibition will feature original props, models, costumes, reconstructed sets, cameras, technical equipment and extensive working and research documents from a man well known for his meticulousness.

Stanley Kubrick: Inside the mind of a visionary filmmaker features all of Kubrick's major feature films, including 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange and Eyes Wide Shut.  It also features Kubrick's planning for AI (completed after his death by Steven Spielberg) and reveals preparatory work for an abandoned Napoleon epic.

Developed with the close assistance of his family and estate, the exhibition draws on Kubrick's enormous personal archives and contains many never-before seen treasures.

Stanley Kubrick: Inside the mind of a visionary filmmaker opens at ACMI 24 November 2005.
