2001: A Space Odyssey is a 1968 scifi film di­rected by Stan­ley Kubrick. Based on a short story by Arthur C Clarke, it deals with hu­man evo­lu­tion through en­coun­ters be­tween hu­mans and mys­te­ri­ous black mono­liths, on a voy­age to Jupiter. The film is a fas­ci­nat­ing mix of sur­re­al­ism and sci­ence. Highly imag­i­na­tive and aes­thetic, it teases the con­cept of time and the re­la­tion­ship be­tween sci­ence and spir­i­tu­al­ity. A provoca­tive film, it is much ahead of its time, with­out a par­al­lel even to­day, de­spite the cin­e­matic tech­nol­ogy.
