Staircases to Nowhere originally began its life as an 18-minute
short film — culled from interviews that were part of The
Elstree Project, an oral history of the movie studios at Elstree
and Borehamwood in England. Response was so overwhelmingly
positive that the project was expanded — and the full-length
Staircases to Nowhere is now the only modern documentary about The
Shining to be endorsed by Warner Bros. and the Kubrick Estate.
