Macedonian artists launch photo-essay of Frankfurt’s exhibition 2001: A Space Odyssey


Film director Jane Altiparmakov and photographer Natasha Geleva prepared a photo-essay of an exhibition that celebrates the 50th anniversary of 2001: Space Odyssey, running from Mar. 21 to Sep. 23 in the Frankfurt’s Film Museum.

Upon and invitation of Jan Harlan, the executive producer of Stanley Kubrick’s movies, Altiparmakov and Geleva attended the opening of the exhibition – a retrospective celebrating Kubrick’s 1968 cult film, which was officially named best sci-fi movie of all time by the American Film Institute.

The exhibition features original designs, models, costumes, props, shooting schedules, production materials and photos from Kubrick’s archive. It answers the question of how Kubrick’s vision of the future was developed and to what extent this was achieved. In addition, it places the film in its production context and looks back on its reception history.

‘The impressions of the jubilee exhibitions are simply overwhelming, incredibly fulfilling. We are talking about a movie, which by its unique approach has altered the film industry, grammar, the film aesthetics in general,’ Altiparmakov says.

Kubrick has been a great inspiration to various generations of movie makers, he says.

MIA has an exclusive honor to present part of the photo-essay, signed by Altiparmakov and Geleva.
