The Filmoteca de Catalunya dedicates a cycle to the filmmaker, coinciding with an anthological exhibition that will open at the end of the month at the CCCB.
As the Filmoteca Catalan Film Library asks itself in the presentation to their retrospective cycle dedicated to Stanley Kubrick, what can be said about this writer, producer and film director that has not already been said? Film fans will surely be able to name his most famous films. But it’s never a bad time to see them again, take in some of his lesser-known works and catch documentaries that tell us more about the ever-controversial Kubrick. Additionally, the CCCB Centre for Contemporary Culture of Barcelona is staging an anthological exhibition reviewing his life from 24 October on. The film cycle, which is titled Stanley Kubrick: a giant, is a long one – it began on 7 October and is set to end on 28 December and will include titles like The Shining (25 and 28 October), Paths of Glory (3 and 9 November), A Clockwork Orange (7 and 9 December), 2001, A Space Odyssey on 13 and 14 December and Spartacus (20 and 27 December).
The director's daughter, Katharina Kubrick, will be present at the Filmoteca on 24 October for the presentation of the film Barry Lyndon, which will be screened again on 30 October. Meanwhile, 26 October sees the free of charge screening of the documentary Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures by Jan Harlan, who will be there to present it. Eyes Wide Shut, Kubrick’s last feature film, starring Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise, will close the retrospective. You can see it on 22 and 28 December.
