A chance to catch Rodney Ascher’s controversial documentary about Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece “The Shining”.
“Room 237” examines, through their own words, some of the theories viewers have formed about “The Shining”, Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of the Stephen King novel starring Jack Nicholson in an iconic role. They range from the film being about the cultural assimilation of Native Americans, to it being Kubrick’s apology for having shot fake footage of the Apollo 11 moon landings. Ultimately, “Room 237” is a film about what IndieWire writer Sam Adams calls “the perils of over-interpretation”.
Catch this fascinating film on the big screen at Kinosch, in the Kulturfabrik grounds, this Wednesday.
