This event will mark ninety years since the birth of the legendary film director, Stanley Kubrick. He was born on July 26th, 1928. Jan Harlan began working with him in 1968 as a researcher on the planned, yet never made, film of NAPOLEON. He went on to work as the executive producer on the historical epic BARRY LYNDON, which was released in 1975. Following this, they worked together on THE SHINING and FULL METAL JACKET. Jan was the executive producer of the final film that Kubrick completed, EYES WIDE SHUT, released in 1999. He also provided assistance to the director on A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. A.I.: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, which was directed by Steven Spielberg, following development by Kubrick, saw Jan as executive producer. It was released in 2001, the year which also saw the release of his feature-length documentary, STANLEY KUBRICK: A LIFE IN PICTURES. He has since acted as an archivist for Kubrick’s body of work and appears around the world, including at film festivals and special events, discussing the filmmaker. Jan is the brother of Christiane Kubrick, Stanley’s widow.
