Heralded in 1968 as the most striking sci-fi film ever, Stanley Kubrick’s epic meditation on human evolution shines brilliantly 46 years later in a new BFI restoration. A highly evolved civilisation sets up mysterious monolithic objects on Earth, the Moon, and in orbit around Jupiter, which impart vital survival information to ancient man, and later signal man to travel deep into space. When man arrives on the great civilisations planet he is reborn with immense powers of wisdom and strength.
