  • Review

    This documentary shows the life of Carlo Di Palma, the legendary director of photography and his 100 films. He shot Michelangelo Antonioni’s Red Desert(1964)and Blow-Up(1966) as well as the early to mid-works of Woody Allen. He was the cinematographer behind the masters of Italian cinema after the 1960s such as Pasolini and Bertolucci. Carlo Di Palma is known for his unique use of colors. The special atmosphere created with these colors painted pages of the film history. He also perceived life through these colors. Of course, the cinematography is not just about colors. How he expressed the invisible tennis ball with just the camera move in the last scene of Blow-Up is amazing. While painting strokes and creating movements with his camera, his artistry became the milestone of not just Italian cinema, but also contemporary films. [LEE Sang-yong]
