Deconstructing Stanley Kubrick
Three seminal works of the master Stanley Kubrick to be studied threadbare
Mohile Parikh Center is set to organise a film appreciation course that looks at the work of Stanley Kubrick. Starting mid-March, the course will involve the screening of Dr Strangelove (1964), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and A Clockwork Orange (1971), followed by an in-depth analysis of each film to explore his contribution to world cinema. The sessions will examine Kubrick’s humanistic and philosophical explorations of themes that continue to dominate our lives — war, the politics of domination, the creation of intelligence, violence, morality and state control.
Jeroo Mulla, former head of the Social Communications Media Department at Sophia Polytechnic, is instructor for the workshop. She had been teaching Film Appreciation, Photography and Communications, along with supervising student documentaries, for over 30 years.
An analysis of A Clockwork Orange is part of the course
