SAN FRANCISCO PREMIERE! DIRECTOR RODNEY ASCHER IN PERSON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHTS! Over thirty years after the release of Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING, viewers are still struggling to understand its hidden meanings. Beyond loving or hating the movie, live the ardent fans who are convinced they have decoded THE SHINING’s secret messages regarding genocide, government conspiracy and the nightmare that we call history. Rodney Ascher’s ROOM 237 fuses fact and fiction through interviews with the fans and scholars who espouse these theories, spotlighting five devotees of the film with wildly different ideas about it’s true meaning.
Dir: Rodney Ascher. 2012. Digital. 102 mins.
