Michelangelo Antonioni (29 September 1912 – 30 July 2007), was an Italian film director, screenwriter, editor, painter, and short story author.
He is best known for his “trilogy on modernity and its discontents” — L’Avventura (1960), La Notte (1961), and L’Eclisse (1962)—as well as the English-language films Blowup (1966) and The Passenger (1975).
His films have been described as “enigmatic and intricate mood pieces” that feature elusive plots, striking visuals, and a preoccupation with modern landscapes. His work would substantially influence subsequent art films.
