Description

Salon Italia - In Italian with English subtitles

Introduction and post screening discussion with Nick Walker

Director : Michelangelo Antonioni
Cast: Monica Vitti, Richard Harris, Carlo Chionetti | 1965 /117/colour

Amid the modern wastelands and toxic factories of Italy, a wife and mother Giuliana desperately tries to conceal her tenuous grip on reality from those around her, especially her successful yet neglectful husband, Ugo. Ugo's old pal  shows up in town on a business trip and is more sensitive to Giuliana's anxieties. They begin an affair, but it does little to quell Giuliana's existential fears, and her mental state rapidly deteriorates

Il deserto rosso was awarded the Golden Lion at the 25th Venice Film Festival in 1964.
