1st Printing. 1 pages. Published in 1970. Rare Michelangelo Antonioni collectible item. A fine copy of the Souvenir Advance Publicity Material for "Zabriskie Point". The promotional material measures 8 X 11 inches, features an austerely beautiful layout, and a black-and-white photograph of the film's stars. Printed on white archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Presents the single most beautiful promotional material for Michelangelo Antonioni's "Zabriskie Point". It shows the young naked couple (the amateur actors Mark Frechette and Daria Halprin) in an "Adam and Eve"-like pose against an elegant layout with simple yet provocative text: "Antonioni looks at America. This December 'Zabriskie Point'. His first film since 'Blow Up' ". Almost all other films on the Sixties, California-based "Counterculture Movement" have dated badly, except for "Zabriskie Point", one of Michelangelo Antonioni's greatest (and most underrated) films. Nostalgia aside, "Five Easy Pieces" and "Easy Rider" are unwatchable today. After taking a look at the frenetic London/UK scene in "Blow Up", the single greatest film on photography (and one of the greatest films of the 20th century), and leaving his permanent stamp on the place, Antonioni turns his gaze to America, and does the same. Michelangelo Antonioni died on July 30, 2007 at the age of 94, an irreplaceable loss not just to cinema but to world culture itself (Ingmar Bergman died on the same day a few hours earlier). A genuine collectible, not just memorabilia, this is a "must-have" item for Michelangelo Antonioni collectors. This item is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online, and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. The greatest Italian film director of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MICHELANGELO ANTONIONI TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 16418
