is the producer and director of Stanley Kubrick
: A Life in Pictures, the first full-length documentary made with the cooperation of the Kubrick family. The labor of love marks his directorial debut.
Harlan first began working with Stanley Kubrick in 1969 as a special assistant during the preparation of Napoleon, which was to be filmed in Romania, and which, over time became a Kubrick project that attained near-mythical status as one of the most well-known films never made. He remained with Kubrick for the next thirty years, serving as his assistant on A Clockwork Orange and executive producer on Barry Lyndon, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut. He was also executive producer on two projects that Kubrick did not live to complete -- Aryan Papers and A.I. (Artificial Intelligence), the latter now nearing completion by Steven Spielberg.
