Hasta la luna y más allá: películas gráficas y el inicio de 2001: una odisea espacial
Friday, Mar 4 - Sunday, Nov 27, 2016
Lugar: Galería del Anfiteatro
In July and August 1965, a California-based production company called Graphic Films, founded by former Disney animator and University of Southern California professor Lester Novros, conducted research and created concept sketches for Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: una odisea espacial. Among the staff were Con Pederson, who directed a film called Hasta la luna y más allá for Graphic Films that Kubrick saw at the World’s Fair at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park earlier that year, and Douglas Trumbull, who had recently joined the company as a background artist. Pederson and Trumbull eventually left Graphic Films to work directly with Kubrick at the MGM studios in England, and were instrumental to the realization of what is arguably the most important science fiction film ever made.
This exhibition features rarely seen artwork created by Graphic Films for 2001: una odisea espacial, and correspondence between the company and Stanley Kubrick. It includes more than twenty detailed sketches for a lunar base and space vehicles; correspondence with script and design suggestions and technical advice; as well as an early draft of the script for the film.
