13th Italian Film Festival of Minneapolis / St. Paul: L’avventura
February 27, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$12
Monica Vitti, an icon of Italian cinema for generations, passed away on February 2, 2022 at the age of ninety. IFF is proud to pay tribute to this incredibly talented actress with the screening of L’avventura by Michelangelo Antonioni, the film that made Vitti a star.
An iconic piece of challenging 1960s cinema and a gripping narrative on its own terms, L’avventura concerns the enigmatic disappearance of a young woman during a yachting trip off the coast of Sicily, and the search taken up by her disaffected lover (Gabriele Ferzetti) and best friend (Monica Vitti, in her breakout role). Antonioni’s controversial international sensation is a gorgeously shot tale of modern ennui and spiritual isolation.
L’avventura won the Special Jury Prize in Cannes in 1960 “for the beauty of its images, and for seeking to create a new film language”.
