Author/ filmmaker/ artist Michael Benson gives a talk at the New York Public Library about recently released book, Space Odyssey: Stanley Kubrick, Arthur C. Clarke, and the Making of a Masterpiece.  This book chronicles the making of 2001, which has as much to be discovered as the meaning behind the film itself.  In this adventure, Benson has gone all over the world to speak to Kubrick's family and estate, Arthur C. Clark where he resided in Sri Lanka, and paints a picture for us readers of a time of great innovation and exploration mirroring the characters in the film.  

Michael Benson will also be interviewed by Kubrick expert and  Moores Distinguished Professor in the Department of English, University of Houston
