Director Stanley Kubrick is most famous for his major motion pictures, including ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’, ‘A Clockwork Orange’, and ‘Full Metal Jacket’.
The TIFF Bell Lightbox is holding an exhibition dedicated to some of his most famous works, as well as some of his unrealized projects. Laurel MacMillan, director of exhibitions at the Lightbox said that it’s their largest exhibition yet and she feels very fullfilled seeing all of their hard work coming together so well.
She also said that it was almost like they were building an entire house. The exhibit consists of a series of rooms dedicated to different films, 2001: A Space Odyssey being the only one that they felt needed two rooms. This being their biggest yet, they also used the fourth floor of the building for a secondary showcase of his unrealized projects, some of his early photography, lenses and some very interesting personal belongings that his family is lending to the exhibit.
