inside the mind of a visionary filmmaker
Friday 25 November - Sunday 29 January
Screen Gallery, Australian Centre for the Moving Image
Tickets > Full $12 Concession $8
If the moving image emerged as the greatest artform of the last century, the films of Stanley Kubrick are among its most outstanding achievements. Visionary and endlessly inventive, their images are among the most unforgettable in the history of cinema.
Don't miss this landmark cultural event, touring to ACMI for an exclusive season following acclaimed presentations in Berlin and Frankfurt. Descend to the world's largest Screen Gallery to explore installations that track Kubrick's career, from his days as a magazine photographer through to his eleven major feature films. Developed with the close assistance of his family and estate, the cooperation of the Hollywood studios, and the support of Kubrick collaborators such as Sidney Pollack and Nicole Kidman, the result is an extensive and absorbing visual biography.
Alongside his major feature films, the exhibition also includes Kubrick's planning for AI, completed after his death by Steven Spielberg, and revealing preparatory work for an abandoned Napolean epic. Original sketches and restored technical equipment are being shown in public for the first time. Reconstructed film sets and special effects provide unique insight into Kubrick's processes.
The mythology that surrounds Kubrick is legendary - meticulous and demanding, he planned his projects with encyclopaedic precision. Don't miss this not-to-be-repeated chance to get inside one of the greatest minds in the history of cinema.
