Image from 2001: A Space Odyssey
Stanley Kubrick’s sci-fi epic is an awe-inspiring landmark in cinema history that creates a truly transcendent experience for the audience. Spanning time from the beginning of man to a new-frontier future, 2001 is a poetic contemplation into the evolution of humanity through the ages. With breathtaking visuals, deeply affecting music, and very little dialogue, Kubrick challenges viewers to decipher the film subjectively and reach deep into their sub-conscious in order to find meaning. “Just what do you think you’re doing, Dave?” (2K DCP presentation)

The film will be introduced by Professor Emeritus James Naremore.
