In addition to its usual emphasis on film scores, the Flanders International Film Fest (Oct. 11-21) in Ghent, Belgium, will showcase the new Stanley Kubrick exhibit. Occupying 13,000 square feet, this vast collection of film clips, working scripts, letters, props, costumes and other memorabilia has been culled from the legendary filmmaker’s archives.
Fest board delegate Jacques Dubrulle promises a behind-the-scenes look at this most private of helmers.
“You not only discover the films Kubrick directed but those he never made,” says Dubrulle, and that includes “Napoleon” and “A.I.” Of special interest are casting interviews with actors whom Kubrick considered but didn’t hire.
The exhibit preemed two years ago in Frankfurt and is expected to travel to either London or Gotham next year.
