Ciao Michelangelo

Antonioni with the workhorse of Italian Cinema- the Arri IIc

Michelangelo Antonioni, maestro of Cinema is dead. His last film Beyond The Clouds (1994) was made when he was 82 and still suffering from the debilitating effects of a stroke. A high priest in the Church of Cinema. Passion for silver nitrate, Zeiss lenses, xenon, carbon arc,spark of intense light, a silver screen, a huge dark room.


Buona Notte Maestro.
