dir. Colin Low & Roman Kroitor

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
dir. Stanley Kubrick

"[T]he staff uncovered Universe, a short film produced by the National Film Board of Canada in 1960. As the film unspooled, Kubrick watched the screen with rapt attention while a panorama of the galaxies swirled by, achieving the standard of dynamic visionary realism that he was looking for." - Vincent Lobrutto, Stanley Kubrick: A Biography
