Blow Out

When: Sat., Jan. 16 2016

Set in London during the '60s, director Michelangelo Antonioni's Blow-Up follows a fashion photographer (David Hemmings) after he captures what may or may not have been evidence of murder. The film provides a "colorful critique of soulless hipsters" as it comments on "appearance, illusion and the evasive nature of truth." Released in 1981, Brian De Palma's Blow Out, a film about a guy who captures an automobile accident on film, serves as a tribute to Blow-Up. A 35mm print of the film screens tonight at 9:25 and tomorrow night at 6:30 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $10. (Niesel)
