One of the most extraordinary collections in film history is coming to London. The extensive archives of Stanley Kubrick, maverick director of 2001: A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange, are to be housed at the capital's University of the Arts from next summer. [...]
The collection is so huge that the university, which unites five arts colleges including Central St Martins College of Art and Design and the London College of Communication, is to build a centre for them at the Elephant and Castle. 'This inspirational collection will be the jewel in the crown of the new centre,' said Will Wyatt, chair of the governors. 'We're planning on attracting other archives to go alongside it.'
The acquisition is a coup for the university, as several US institutions had expressed an interest in housing the archives. But Kubrick's family were keen for it to stay in Britain. 'Stanley spent most of his life in the UK and we are very happy the archives will be located in London,' said his widow, Christiane. [...]
Sul sito dell'Università ci sono ulteriori informazioni e il comunicato stampa ufficiale con dichiarazioni di Spielberg e Christiane Kubrick. Non risulta chiaro se questo materiale sia lo stesso della mostra di Francoforte (attualmente a Melbourne e in arrivo a Roma per aprile 2006) anche se sembrerebbe l'intera collezione. Ad ogni modo, we'll see.
