Early Antonioni at LACMA- Le Amiche

Written by Joe D on August 19th, 2010

They’re screening a rare early Michelangelo Antonioni film Friday night at LACMA. Le Amiche (The Girlfriends) was never released here in the US of A back when it was made in 1955. It’s screening in a new restored 35mm print in glorious Italian B&W so if you can make it, hightail it over to the Bing theater at 7:30 or 9:30. LAMA was threatening to close down their film series until Martin Scorsese and others stepped in so we need to support this venue. I’ve seen some excellent films there including Melville’s Leon Morin- Pretre and Pasolini’s The Gospel According To Saint Matthew. I was lucky enough to sit behind the legendary cinematographer Tonino Delle Colle at that one. So go already, support Films as Art, edify yourself with some popular entertainment.
