The CCCB presents the exhibition “Stanley Kubrick”, a chronological look at the work of a genius of the cinema, the creator of masterworks in a wide variety of cinematographic genres. The show reviews the creative career of New York director Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999), from his formative years as a photographer at Look magazine, to his 12 feature films, closing with his projects that remained uncompleted or were taken on by other filmmakers.
