Arena: Dear Antonioni
Television documentary about the life of Michelangelo Antonioni.
The programme explores Antonioni's career as a writer, painter and filmmaker from his first feature film, 'Cronaca di un amore' made in 1950, to his 1997 film 'Beyond the Clouds'. In particular, it looks at his fascination with class dynamics, especially in films such as 'Grande de Po', a short film about the life and struggle of boat people on the River Po, and at his determination to make films in the face of critical hostility.
Narrated in English. Off-air recording, BBC2, 18/01/1997.
