2001: A Space Odyssey

“Wednesday Movie Club” at Window on America center Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine offered screening of the sci-fi dramedy film 2001: A Space Odyssey  (1968) to all who wish to improve their language skills.
This movie is a epic science fiction film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick. The screenplay, written by Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, was partially inspired by Clarke's short story "The Sentinel". Clarke concurrently wrote the novel 2001: A Space Odyssey, published soon after the film was released. The film follows a voyage to Jupiter with the sentient computer Hal after the discovery of a mysterious black monolith affecting human evolution. The film deals with the themes of existentialism, human evolution, technology, artificial intelligence, and extraterrestrial life. It is noted for its scientifically accurate depiction of space flight, pioneering special effects, and ambiguous imagery. It uses sound and minimal dialogue in place of traditional narrative techniques; the soundtrack consists of classical music such as The Blue Danube and Also sprach Zarathustra.
WOA’s patrons enjoyed the film and the discussion that followed.
Number of participants – 15 persons.
