Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni

United Kingdom, Italy 1966 111 mins. In English

Antonioni’s landmark film set a new course for the cinema with its stylistic flourishes, jazzy score by Herbie Hancock, and existential probing of the relationship between image, representation, and reality in modern culture. A London fashion photographer (David Hemmings) photographs a woman (Vanessa Redgrave) in a park and later comes to believe that he has actually recorded the scene of a murder. As he later probes the image, his life of sterile pleasure gives way to a fragmenting search for truth. With Sarah Miles and Jane Birkin. “It remains a deadpan delight—witty, sexy, nasty, tricky.”—David Thomson, Have You Seen?

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
