Room 237 dissects Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining in amazing and unexpected ways, looking at a host of conspiracy theories around secret codes and messages supposedly hidden within the film. Director Rodney Ascher has uncovered a thriving subculture of Kubrick fans, critics and film theorists – ranging from semi-obsessive to paranoid delusional – who ascribe a plethora of interpretations to The Shining. Is it about the Holocaust? Or the plight of the American Indians? Or is it a confession of Kubrick’s involvement with faking the moon landing? Rodney Ascher’s wry and provocative Room 237 fuses fact and fiction through interviews with cultists and scholars, creating a kaleidoscopic deconstruction of Kubrick’s still-controversial classic. Of course the festival will screen The Shining as well.
