Enzian Theatre and Snap! Orlando present Michelangelo Antonioni’s acclaimed Cult Classic film BLOW-UP.
BLOW-UP, which combines traditional Film noir cinematic elements with postmodern social commentary, was nominated for multiple Academy Awards, BAFTAs, and Golden Globes including Best Director, Best Original Screenplay. Antonioni won the Grand Prix at the 1967 Cannes Film Festival.
Thomas (David Hemmings) is a London photographer who spends his time photographing fashion models. But one day he thinks he may have photographed something far more sinister: a murder. After taking pictures in the park, Thomas is horrified to find an ambiguous image lurking on the edge of the frame, which could be a shadow, but looks like a gun. The only thing clear is that the woman (Vanessa Redgrave) in the photo has appeared at his studio — and wants the pictures he took.
