Douglas Trumbull + Michael Benson: Envisioning 2001 Without HAL

Apr 29, 2020

On April 22, 2020, Museum of the Moving Image’s Director of Curatorial Affairs Barbara Miller presented a newly rediscovered storyboard sequence for 2001: A Space Odyssey from the Museum’s collection, and moderated a discussion with visual effects legend and director Douglas Trumbull, and Michael Benson, author of Space Odyssey: Stanley Kubrick, Arthur C. Clarke, and the Making of a Masterpiece.


Discussions with creative figures in film, television, and digital media—formerly the Pinewood Dialogues—made possible with a generous grant from the Pannonia Foundation.
