Time & place

 Il Desserto Rosso was the first colour film made by celebrated Italian filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni and is regarded as one of his very best. Monica Vitti stars as Giuliana, a woman just released from hospital who finds herself overwhelmed by the world around her, an environment of rain and fog, billowing industry and hostile landscapes. A haunting, beguiling film filled with existential malaise and beautifully shot by cinematographer Carlo Di Palma.


“Red Desert is at once the most beautiful, the most simple and the most daring film yet made by Italy's masterful Michelangelo Antonioni”
