Talk by Chris Fite-Wassilak & Tom Flanagan.
Was it 58 times that Stanley reshot Jack Nicholson crossing a street in The Shining in the hope that, as he told me, ”something interesting would happen”?
– Ian Watson, New York Review of Science Fiction, 2000
Writer and curator Chris Fite-Wassilak and artist and filmmaker Tom Flanagan began a multipart documentary film project exploring the myths and methods that hover around the making of Kubrick’s version of The Shining (1980). Carrying out in-depth interviews with Kubrick’s colleagues and collaborators, as well as with experimental re-stagings of particular scenes, the project seeks to examine a methodology entirely separate from Kubrick himself and the usual ‘troubled genius’ portraits. Taking his constant re-shooting of scenes as a focus on a way of working, this talk will provide a glimpse in to their research and process in asking, how do you know when you’ve found what you’re looking for?
The talk will include an exclusive ten minute preview from the documentary aspect of the project.
