House on the Hill Screening Room
1543 Burden Lake Road, Averill Park, NY
This film series is being crafted as we go along. Each screening is imagined to be an island and the conversations around the films are how we navigate from one to the next. Of course, we do go into the kitchen after the film and gather around the island to eat and drink and share our experiences.
Bring friends, eats & drinks or if you prefer a small dollar contribution towards maintaining and developing our programs.
Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni
Starring David Hemmings, Vanessa Redgrave, Sarah Miles
A mod London photographer seems to find something very suspicious in the shots he has taken of a mysterious beauty in a desolate park
A successful mod photographer in London whose world is bounded by fashion, pop music, marijuana, and easy sex, feels his life is boring and despairing. Then he meets a mysterious beauty, and also notices something frightfully suspicious on one of his photographs of her taken in a park. The fact that he may have photographed a murder does not occur to him until he studies and then blows up his negatives, uncovering details, blowing up smaller and smaller elements, and finally putting the puzzle together.
