Future Cinema, a British film screening company, hosted a 60s Mod happening at the Shangri-la Studio in Greenpoint Brooklyn.
Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blow Up was screened, a film about a blasé fashion photographer in 1960s London, rifed with the ennui of his fashion fame, driven by a tortured artistic passion.
The massive event space set the scene with recreations of the film and populated the crowd with Mod dancers and swinging London decor. The happening was a mis en scene to prepare the audience for the screening of Blow Up. A faux casting started the night, which incorporated make up artists, dancers, and Brit bands. The film screening started with a brilliant black and white short.
Next screening Aug 15!!
