Michelangelo Antonioni’s drawing


“I recently unearthed the tape of an interview I had with Michelangelo Antonioni in November 1980, recorded as I was preparing my book, Antonioni, or the Surface of the World. Antonioni invited me to his beautiful apartment on the Tiber. He was warm, friendly, open, and always  candid. The interview was partly in English and partly in Italian. For this publication, Antonioni graciously allowed me to reproduce some of his own drawings  and texts.” —Seymour Chatman, Michelangelo Antonioni in 1980: An Interview [pdf].

"We are saddled with a culture that hasn’t advanced as far as science. Scientific man is already on the moon, and yet we are still living with the moral concepts of Homer. Hence this upset, this disequilibrium that makes weaker people anxious and apprehensive, that makes it so difficult for them to adapt to the mechanism of modern life."
