Bigger than Life presents: Blow-Up, a 35mm Engagement.
When a hip, egocentric fashion photographer (David Hemmings) discovers he might have unwittingly captured a murder whilst taking pictures of two strangers in the park, his obsessive investigations lead him stumbling into a web of intrigue and conspiracy that runs through a dark vision of swinging London.
A fascinating detour in the career of the revered Italian maestro, Michelangelo Antonioni, whose films helped change the face of European Cinema in the early 1960’s, Blow-Up is arguably the definitive portrait of the swinging 60’s capturing the hedonism and danger of a city in the midst of a cultural revolution encompassing sex, drugs, fashion and, of course rock’n’roll.
