Screening held at the Seattle Art Museum, 1300 First Avenue
Post-screening discussion moderated by Joe Milutis!

Blow-Up stars David Hemmings as a photographer in swinging London who, trying to balance his time shooting glamorous models for glossy magazines with more soulful street photography,  seems to photograph a murder in a public park. Part murder mystery, part post-modern exploration of a riddling universe, this is the film that blew up Antonioni’s career and made his name synonymous with Pop Art and Modern Worry. Please note, this screening is hosted at the Seattle Art Museum, 1300 First Avenue. Special ticket pricing: $12/General Admission, $10/SAM and NWFF Members, $8/Students and Seniors.
