In the twenty years following his death in 1999, biographies, documentaries, and exhibitions have been produced on his career and film analysis. Family, friends, and colleagues have spoken out about him. But until now, we have not heard these stories from the mouth of Kubrick himself.

Stanley Kubrick's mark on the legacy of cinema can never be measured. He was a giant in his field, his great works resembling pristine pieces of art, studied by students and masters alike, all searching for answers their maker was notoriously reticent to give. While he's among the most scrutinized filmmakers that ever lived, the chance to hear Kubrick’s own words was a rarity—until now.

Unspooling exclusive new recordings of detailed interviews with the mythic director spanning 30 years that ruminate on his philosophies, documentarian Gregory Monro weaves a tapestry of archival footage with the rhythm and care of a consummate historian relishing in his discoveries. No stranger to investigating legends of the screen, Monro's exuberant and lyrical cinematic essay is vital. Taking viewers on a journey beyond Jupiter, Kubrick by Kubrick celebrates the essence of what film means to those who make it—and those who watch.
