To celebrate the centenary of the birth of one of Europe’s greatest film directors, Michelangelo Antonioni, staff from Royal Holloway’s School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures and Department of Media Arts, with special guest speakers, present a screening of two rarely seen shorts by Antonioni, followed by a round-table discussion and guest lecture on his artistic legacy and the relations between cinema, art and the museum.

The speakers will include Dr John David Rhodes (University of Sussex) and Dr Laura Rascaroli (University of Cork), and the writer and curator Professor Dominique Païni (École du Louvre, Paris), who is organising a multimedia exhibition and retrospective in Antonioni’s home town of Ferrara in March to June 2013. The event will culminate with a lecture by Professor Païni on Antonioni in the Windsor Auditorium at 5:30 pm, followed by a Q&A. Professor Paini’s lecture will be in French, with an English translation available on the HARC website in advance, and on-the-spot bilingual translation will also be available for the Q&A session on the day.
