Among the exhibition’s sections is one on the film “The Aryan Papers,” a Holocaust drama that came so close to being made that Kubrick cast Dutch actress Johanna Ter Steege in the leading role. But the film — which he researched for two decades — was never made.
In an interview with Pam Grady at SF Gate, director Lori Star remarked on 2001, A Space Odyssey. “Scholars are calling "2001" his most Jewish film, and we’re asking scholars to tell us what’s Jewish about it, and we’re asking the public to tell us what’s Jewish about it,” Starr says. “I’ll just say that Stanley Kubrick called it his most Jewish film. We know two things: He was fascinated by the concept of the unknowable and how Jews don’t say the name of God, don’t even write it.” The CJM notes Kubrick’s connections to Jewish culture and concerns, from his upbringing in a middle-class Jewish home, to his interest in Jewish intellectual writers as a young man, to characterizations in his films, from Kirk Douglas in “Spartacus” and “Paths of Glory” to Peter Sellers in “Lolita” and “Dr. Strangelove.”
The museum has partnered with both the YBCA, the Alamo Cinema and the SF Symphony to present Kubrick films and related programs.
