Jan Harlan

Executive Producer

Jan Harlan joined Stanley Kubrick in 1969 for a film on the life and influence of Napoleon, a film that was abandoned by MGM before production started. Jan continued to work with Kubrick and was Executive Producer on a number of films – from Barry Lyndon to Eyes Wide Shut. Jan worked on other unrealised projects with Kubrick, including Arian Papers. After Kubrick’s death in 1999, he worked with Steven Spielberg on A.I. Artificial Intelligence, a film he had prepared with Stanley Kubrick in the early 1990s. Jan made two documentaries for Warner Bros., and a documentary with an international youth orchestra on the Dvorak Cello Concerto. He has worked with TASCHEN publishers on several publications, and is a guest-lecturer at many different film schools around the globe. An instrumental figure in the formation of the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University of the Arts London, he was involved in creating a large touring exhibition – taking place at London Design Museum in 2019.
