2001: A Space Odyssey

Directed by: Stanley Kubrick

1968 | USA/UK


Saturday, March 23, 2013, 7pm - 9pm

"Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the greatest films of all time and it is the director's most profound and confounding exploration of humanity's relationship to technology, violence, sexuality and social structures. Kubrick's philosophical inquiries about the nature of humanity are explored throughout all his films but here he explored his preoccupations by examining the place that humans occupy in the universe, asking questions about the way humanity has evolved and suggesting what the next stage of our evolution will be like. But the ultimate meaning of the film is as deliberately ambiguous as the motives and origins of the black monoliths whose gift of intelligence gave humanity the tools it needed to both survive and self destruct." - Thomas Caldwell, Cinema Autopsy.
