Rebel with a Cause: Stanley Kubrick’s Cinema

12pm PST

We encourage everyone to watch the presentation live. It will not be available to view as we are currently working behind the scenes to improve the user experience.

Stanley Kubrick’s films unravel failed masteries and collapsed heroes, undermining notions of masculinity and relationships.

In his new biography on the life of the legendary filmmaker, Professor David Mikics offers a fascinating look into Kubrick's view of the world and how his Jewishness affected his idea of himself as an outsider.

In this talk, Mikics offers a glimpse into Kubrick's work, and what can we learn from him at this moment.
