Le desert rouge [Il deserto rosso, Red Desert]

Rome: Film Duemila, 1964. Vintage French theatrical poster for the 1964 Italian film,"Il Deserto Rosso" (released in France as Le Desert Rouge, and in the US and UK as "Red Desert"), directed by Michelangelo Antonioni and starring Monica Vitti.

Antonioni's first color film was the ambitious follow up to the trilogy that began with "La Avventura." While continuing the theme of dislocation in the modern world that pervaded his earlier work, "Red Desert" is soaked in reds and blues, making it a sharp contrast to the black and white films.

24 x 32 inches (61 x 81 cm), folded, Near Fine.
