🖋️Writer and essayist Durga Chew-Bose joins us to examine the performances of RED DESERT star Monica Vitti and the crucial contribution that the actress made to Antonioni’s work.

👩🏻Monica Vitti is the traumatized heroine, who, suffering from an unnamed malaise and in a desperate search for love, has a brief affair with a visiting business associate (Richard Harris) of her factory-manager husband.

🌹Working in colour for the first time, Antonioni all but subjugates character to landscape as he transforms Ravenna into a desert of slagheaps, factories, and sulphurous skies.

🌄Prescient in its connection of existential and ecological concerns, RED DESERT is considered one of the greatest works of European cinema, and must be seen on the big screen for its fullest effect, especially in this 35mm print of a recent restoration.

«Perhaps the most extraordinary and riveting film of Antonioni's entire career» — Geoff Andrew Time Out London

Antonioni's RED DESERT (1964) with Durga Chew-Bose — June 17 at TIFF.
