2001: A Space Odyssey (70mm)

It’s the fiftieth anniversary of 2001: A Space Odyssey and celebrations are in order. Kubrick’s critical view of technological development is regarded as a milestone in the history of cinema because of its original narrative structure and pioneering special effects.

Eye screens a new 70mm print of Kubrick's classic film, made from the original camera negative. The print premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and was supervised by director Christopher Nolan.

Kubrick originally perfected every detail of his magnificent tale of man’s origins and the rebellion of a self-thinking computer that takes over the crew of a spaceship. His visionary film about our growing dependence on technology is more relevant than ever.

technology criticism

The spectacular use of classical music for the soundtrack, the art direction and the theme (‘what is man’s place in the universe’) turned the film into a mind-blowing experience and an irresistible mix of science fiction, technology criticism and adventure film. Nominated for four Oscar Awards, 2001: A Space Odyssey ultimately received an Oscar for Special Visual Effects.

enigmatic monolith

Kubrick’s psychedelic space-time trip starts when a black monolith is discovered on the moon in 2001 and takes us from the dawn of man to a future in which ageing processes have become reversible. Meanwhile astronaut David Bowman embarks on a space mission to Jupiter to investigate an enigmatic monolith, assisted by HAL-9000, a supercomputer with a mind of its own.
