It's Making The Shining (1980), a made-for-TV documentary short filmed and directed by Kubrick daughter Vivian Kubrick. Making The Shining takes viewers backstage of The Shining, famously showing glimpses of Shelley Duvall's difficult time on set, Jack Nicholson as the most famous goofball in the world, and a rare glimpse of the legendary Kubrick in action.
