The first trailer debuted for Kubrick by Kubrick, a new documentary on director Stanley Kubrick considered one of the most influential filmmakers in cinematic history. Directed by French filmmaker Grégory Monro, the documentary was set to world premiere at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival before it was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The documentary is based on conversations and interviews Kubrick had with French film critic Michel Ciment who had a 30-year relationship with the filmmaker.
Stanley Kubrick’s mark on the legacy of cinema can never be measured. He was a giant in his field, his great works resembling pristine pieces of art, studied by students and masters alike, all searching for answers their maker was notoriously reticent to give. While he’s among the most scrutinized filmmakers that ever lived, the chance to hear Kubrick’s own words was a rarity-until now.
Unspooling exclusive new recordings of detailed interviews with the mythic director spanning 30 years that ruminate on his philosophies, documentarian Grégory Monro weaves a tapestry of archival footage with the rhythm and care of a consummate historian relishing in his discoveries. No stranger to investigating legends of the screen, Monro’s exuberant and lyrical cinematic essay is vital. Taking viewers on a journey beyond Jupiter, Kubrick by Kubrick celebrates the essence of what film means to those who make it-and those who watch. “Synopsis via Tribeca Film Festival”
