TIFF’s Stanley Kubrick exhibition October 31- January 25

The Killing, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Full Metal Jacket, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb and The Shining. Stanley Kubrick showed that he could master any genre of film and proved to be one of the most seminal directors in film history.


From October 31 to January 25, TIFF Bell Lightbox will be celebrating the career of Kubrick with an exhibition featuring rare artifacts, scripts and props that will span the directors career. Most recently, the exhibit was held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and has gained the reputation of being a ‘must see’ installment for not just Kubrick fans but fans of cinema as a whole.

Visitors will be able to see, ‘Priceless items such as the ‘Starchild’ from 2001: A Space Odyssey, the dresses of the ghostly sisters from The Shining, the ‘Born to Kill’ helmet of Private Joker from Full Metal Jacket, and the authentic model of the ‘War Room’ in Dr. Strangelove are just a few of the many pieces on display.’


The exhibition will also feature scripts, costume designs and research papers for the uncompleted Napoleon and The Aryan Papers project which has reached mythical levels of speculation that rival that of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Dune.


Kubrick’s work as a photojournalist from 1945-1950 for Look Magazine will be on display as well as documentary shorts which will give us an insight into the beginnings of his craft.

And if you aren’t familiar with Kubrick’s work, the Lightbox will be showing all of his movies and will run from the start of the exhibit until January 18. Accompanying some of these screenings will be introductions by people who worked with the director and roundtable discussions with collaborators, family members, critics and film scholars.
