Michelangelo Antonioni (1912 – 2007), was an Italian film director, screenwriter, editor, and short story writer. Best known for his “trilogy on modernity” —L’Avventura (1960), La Notte (1961), and L’Eclisse (1962). Antonioni ” redefined the concept of narrative cinema” and challenged traditional approaches to storytelling, realism, and drama. These films received awards at BAFTA, Cannes, and a Golden Berlin Bear. This success allowed him to go abroad and to work on international scale in English: e.g. Blow-Up (1966) in London and Zabriskie Point (1970) in the USA as well as The Passenger (1975).
