“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].
