UP & OUT
Directed by Christian Marclay
(1998, USA, 111 mins.)
In this feature-length video collage, Marclay uniquely couples work by Michelangelo Antonioni and Brian De Palma to create a new film, overlaying Antonioni’s 1966 masterpiece Blow Up with the soundtrack from Brian De Palma’s 1981 thriller Blow Out. The photographer in Blow Up (played by David Hemmings) and the sound effects specialist in Blow Out (played by John Travolta) are both forced into forensic roles, as are the viewers of Up and Out who must use their wits to piece the images and sounds together.
Special thanks to Paula Cooper Gallery for making this screening possible.
