RED DESERT
IL DESERTO ROSSO
1964, Janus Films, 117 min, Italy, France, Dir: Michelangelo Antonioni

Industrial blight has never looked more beautiful than in director Michelangelo Antonioni’s first color film. Monica Vitti stars as Giuliana, a wife and mother living near a petrochemical plant in northern Italy. Though Giuliana feels profoundly alienated, the attentions of her husband’s business associate (Richard Harris) do little to relieve her loneliness. In Italian with English subtitles.


35 mm!

IL GRIDO
1957, Compass Film, 116 min, Italy/USA, Dir: Michelangelo Antonioni

Commonly described as a link between the Italian neorealist movement and Antonioni’s most famous works of the following decade, IL GRIDO follows a disillusioned working-class man (Steve Cochran) who voluntarily detaches himself from all facets of society. Disappointed by everyone in his life, including his lover (Alida Valli), the man wanders the Po Valley, vainly searching for human connection. As in his best films, Antonioni sets a thoroughly bleak tone throughout by hermetically enclosing his characters in chilling landscapes and stark industrial environments. Winner of the Golden Leopard Award at the 1957 Locarno International Film Festival.


Both films in Italian with English subtitles.
