S Is For Stanley is the story of Emilio D’Alessandro, Stanley Kubrick’s personal driver. A friendship that lasted through 30 years of their lives, helped create four cinema masterpieces, and brought together two apparently opposite people, that found their ideal journey companion far away from their homes.

Followed by a Q&A with Filippo Ulivieri, leading Italian expert on Stanley Kubrick and co-author of Stanley Kubrick and Me, the book that inspired this film.
“I first heard of Emilio D’Alessandro during an interview with Kubrick’s wife in their house near London. When I read his life story I was so blown away that I decided I was going to be the one to put it to film. It’s been a beautiful journey that has gotten me very close to the incredible personalities of two men: one of which I thought I knew everything, only to discover I did not know a single thing, the other of which I didn’t know a thing but has left me speechless with his amazing anedoctes.”
