Stanley Kubrick's Boxes

Stanley Kubrick
R.I.P 1928 – 1999

A biography of a remarkably talented man as seen though the rich collection of material he left behind. Stanley Kubrick's films were landmark events – majestic, memorable and richly researched. But, as the years went by, the time between films grew longer and longer, and less and less was seen of the director. What on earth was he doing?

Two years after Kubrick's death, Jon Ronson was invited to the director's estate to explore the hundreds of boxes the legendary film director had collected during his decades at Childwick Manor in Hertfordshire. He's been returning ever since, and the story of Kubrick and the archive, now housed at University of the Arts London, is revealed in this fascinating documentary by looking through the hundreds of boxes he left behind.
