Michelangelo Antonioni (1912-2007) tidak diragukan lagi adalah salah satu sutradara paling penting dalam sejarah film dunia. Ia memulai karirnya sebagai wartawan film pada tahun 1935 di sebuah koran lokal di Ferrara, Italia. Ia selalu dikenal karena pendirian kritisnya, beberapa kritikus film bahkan menggolongkannya sebagai intelektual Marxis pasca religius dan eksistensialis. Ia bukan saja dikenal karena pendiriannya, tapi juga karena pencapaiannya dalam bidang gaya sinematik, terutama eksplorasi warna sebagai elemen ekspresif dalam film, serta penggunaan gambar-gambar yang nyaris seperti mimpi untuk mempertanyakan sifat realitas fotografis. Hampir setiap filmnya memenangi penghargaan internasional bergengsi di seluruh dunia. Antonioni juga menerima pengakuan dunia atas pencapaian seumur hidupnya, seperti Lifetime Achievement Award from the Istanbul Film Festival (1996), the USA Academy Awards (1995) dan the European Film Award (1993).

Michelangelo Antonioni (1912-2007) is undoubtedly one of the greatest directors of world cinema history. He started his career as film journalist in 1935 in a local newspaper in Ferrara. He has always been known for his critical standings, even dubbed as post-religious Marxist and existensialist intellectual by film critics. Not only is he appreciated for his ethics, he’s also acknowledged as a phenomenon in cinematic style, namely exploitation of colors as expressive element in films and creating dreamlike cinematography to question the nature of photographic reality. Almost every single one of his works have swept away prestigious awards around the globe. Antonioni has received worldwide acknowledgement for his achievements, such as Lifetime Achievement Award from the Istanbul Film Festival (1996), the USA Academy Awards (1995) and the European Film Award (1993).
