Wynwood's very own O-Cinema is running a week-long tribute to the seminal works of Director Stanley Kubrick from Monday, April 8th, until Sunday, the 14th. O-Cinema representative Kareem Tabsch stopped by the studio, along with Rodney Ascher, director of documentary Room 237, which explores the layers of meaning beneath The Shining.
Voted the "Best Arthouse Cinema" by The Miami New Times, O-Cinema is kicking off a solid week devoted to the varied and consistantly incredible works of Stanley Kubrick. Not only will many of his films be shown, but special lectures and talks will also be held featuring such individuals as Matthew Modine, the lead in Full Metal Jacket, and Lisa Leone, Kubrick's production assistant for his last film, Eyes Wide Shut. A number of film critics and analysts will also hold discussions following certain screenings.
UM film school alum Rodney Ascher will also be screening his documentary Room 237 on several occasions later in the week, and will be present at certain screenings for discussions. Room 237 not only explores the myriad interpretations of Kubrick's legendary film, The Shining, but also documents the passion with which the movie's fans have examined it from every concievable angle.
