The ‘Modernity’ Trilogy: Michelangelo Antonioni
Italian film auteur Michelangelo Antonioni’s informal trilogy on modernity and its discontents, comprises three films L’Avventura (The Adventure, 1960), La Notte (The Night, 1961), and L’Eclisse (Eclipse, 1962). These three films, along with the fourth of the series Red Desert (1964), represent a concerted attempt to create a new form of film language, which Antonioni deemed necessary for the then postwar world. Antonioni achieves the apotheosis of his style in these films to exercise the theme that preoccupied him the most: the difficulty of connection in an alienating modern world.
