Water and Sugar: Carlo Di Palma The Colours of Life

This fine film celebrates the life and work of the great cinematographer Carlo Di Palma.

Di Palma came of age in the golden age of Italian neorealist cinema, working on films such as RomeOpen City and Bicycle Thieves, but his best work was done in collaboration with Antonioni. Red Desert and Blow-Up are two of the films they worked on together.

Later, he directed his own films, worked with younger directors like Bertolucci, and had a long, long collaboration with Woody Allen (12 films all told).

The best comment here comes from someone who describes Di Palma as ‘a master of light’ – that is the perfect epithet for the man.
