+ intro by actor Peter Bowles
Antonioni’s cult movie about a photographer who encounters a mystery in swinging 60s London.
Dir Michelangelo Antonioni
With David Hemmings, Vanessa Redgrave, Peter Bowles, Sarah Miles
Antonioni’s first film outside Italy chronicles 24 hours in the life of a feckless London fashion photographer (Hemmings), seemingly interested only in the perks of his career until an encounter with a woman in a park introduces mystery – and perhaps meaning – into his life. Though boasting iconic figures from the 60s scene, the film is primarily memorable for a brilliant darkroom sequence.
