Our flagship exhibition in 2011 is devoted to Stanley Kubrick
It is the first time that La Cinémathèque française hosts a travelling exhibition not initiated by our teams but by those of another institution. This Kubrick exhibition owes its existence to the Deutsches Filmmuseum in Frankfurt and to Hans-Peter Reichmann, its Curator, who designed it in 2004 in close collaboration with Christiane Kubrick, Jan Harlan and The Stanley Kubrick Archive in London.
Since 2004, the exhibition has opened with success in several cities: Berlin, Zurich, Gand, Rome and Melbourne, before coming to the Cinémathèque.
The archives of Stanley Kubrick contain numerous and precious working documents: scenarios, correspondences, research documents, photos of film shoots, costumes and accessories. The exhibition, film after film, includes the unfinished projects: the Napoleon that Kubrick hoped to direct and his project for a film on the death camps, Aryan Papers. These materials allow us to get backstage and better understand the narrative and technical intentions of the director who was a demigod of world cinema, a secret and fascinating figure. The exhibition will be installed on two floors of the Frank Gehry building, on the 5th and 7th storeys, owing to the bulk of the materials exhibited, including large-scale models and interactive digital installations.

Eyes Wide Open
Available from 2 March on newsstands and in bookshops.
Guide to the exhibition.
The magazine goes back over the life and career of the American film director with a biography and an exhaustive filmography, as well as an analysis of the key motifs of his work (breakdown of order, split personality, derailments). This overview will be completed by a panorama of his principal heirs (from Steven Spielberg to James Cameron), articles on his visionary use of techniques, sound and faces, a report made in London in his Childwickbury manor house, and interviews with his entourage (...).
Special issue Kubrick -
Available on 21 March 2011 on newsstands. Accompanied by the classic Lolita in DVD.
A collection of the key articles published on the film director by the journal over the years, notably when he died in 1999, this special issue will also offer the opportunity to take a fresh look at the complete filmography of the master through new
articles on each of his films. It will offer a review of his influence on the new generations of outstanding directors (from David Lynch to Christopher Nolan, including the Coen Brothers and Gaspar Noé), contemporary video and graphic artists who prolong his taste for cinematographic experimentation and his visionary approach to image and story.
