An existential “detective story” in which Anna, a young woman, disappears on a deserted island during a boat cruise.

L’ECLISSE

Sat, Apr 28 1:30 PM (126 min)
A tailspin at the Rome stock exchange serves as a backdrop for a love affair between a translator (Monica Vitti) and her mother’s stockbroker (Alain Delon). Antonioni’s evocation of anomie and alienation was never so exquisitely articulated as in L’ECLISSE. The final scene, in which suspense is built out of an increasingly unbearable absence, is justly famous.

RED DESERT (IL DESERTO ROSSO)

Sat, Apr 28 4:00 PM (117 min)
A provocative look at the spiritual desolation of the technological age - about a disaffected woman (Monica Vitti), wandering through a bleak industrial landscape beset by power plants and environmental toxins, and tentatively flirting with her husband’s coworker (Richard Harris). RED DESERT creates a nearly apocalyptic image of its time, and confirms Antonioni as cinema’s preeminent poet of the modern age.

BLOW-UP

Sat, Apr 28 6:30 PM (111 min)
BLOW-UP takes the form of a psychological mystery, starring David Hemmings as a fashion photographer who unknowingly captures a death on film after following two lovers in a park. Antonioni’s meticulous aesthetic control and intoxicating color palette breathe life into every frame, and the jazzy sounds of Herbie Hancock, a beautifully evasive performance by Vanessa Redgrave, and a cameo by the Yardbirds make the film a transporting time capsule from a bygone era.
