The cinema of Michelangelo Antonioni (1912-2007) embodies - more than that of any other
director - the substance of European art cinema. Antonioni's films are intensely stylized, stylish,
demanding, beautiful, daring, frustrating, and gratifying. Antonioni died on 30 July 2007, eerily
the exact same day that his art cinema rival Ingmar Bergman also passed away. Antonioni's
death - perhaps too conveniently - seemed to mark a terminal point in film history. More
importantly, his death brought home immediately the need to reassess Antonioni's contribution
to world cinema.This collection of new essays by leading film scholarsaddresses Michelangelo Antonionias apre-eminent figure in European art cinema, explores his continuing influence and legacy, and engages with his ability to both interpret and shape ideas of modernity and modern cinema.

From the Back Cover:

The cinema of Michelangelo Antonioni (1912–2007) embodies – more than that of any other director – the substance of European art cinema. His intensely stylised, stylish, demanding and gratifying films continue to spark controversy and debate – and inspire intense allegiance. On the centenary of Antonioni's birth, this volume places his work in an expanded field in order to reassess his contribution and continued centrality to world cinema. The contributors to this volume argue for an understanding of his work in a variety of new contexts: transnational cinema; conceptual photography; intermediality; thing theory; ecological and climate change theory; rubbish theory; microhistorical urbanism; the theory of the picturesque; and the theory of style.

The Antonioni that emerges across these essays is an artist profoundly engaged in formal experimentation and deeply embedded in the complexities of his cultural and historical moment, whose work, therefore, continues to offer itself as a rich resource for thinking through the contradictory conditions of late modernity in the twenty-first century.
