Stanley Kubrick’s elegiac, astonishing and timeless sci-fi film screens as part of Art-AI Festival; to mark the opening of our new exhibition “Watching” from media artist Ben Bogart.
A dazzling, compelling drama of man vs. machine, 2001: A Space Odyssey is a stunning meld of music and motion.
Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits mankind's prehistoric past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space where the discovery of a monolith on the moon will send astronaut Bowman on an incredible, transcendent journey through time and space.
