ACADEMY TO SALUTE STANLEY KUBRICK

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will celebrate the life and career of filmmaker Stanley Kubrick on Wednesday, November 7, at 7:30 p.m. at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. Hosted by Malcolm McDowell, the evening features film clips and personal remembrances by his friends and collaborators, including Paul Mazursky, Ryan O’Neal and Matthew Modine. The salute is presented in association with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), leading off its retrospective screening series “2012: A Kubrick Odyssey,” and in conjunction with its exhibition “Stanley Kubrick.”

Kubrick, a 13-time Academy Award®–nominated director, writer and producer – who also won an Oscar® for Special Visual Effects for “2001: A Space Odyssey” – was one of the world’s most visually innovative, thematically operatic and intellectually challenging filmmakers. His movies, such as “Lolita,” “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb,” “A Clockwork Orange,” “Barry Lyndon,” “The Shining,” “Full Metal Jacket” and “Eyes Wide Shut,” have consistently defied audiences’ expectations and expanded the boundaries of visual storytelling with wit, style, humor and intelligence.
