A series of interviews to the people involved in the making of Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blow up to capture the journey that the director made in 1966 during the shooting of the film.

Among those interviewed is Antonioni’s ex-dialogue assistant Piers Haggard, in his first experience with the cinema before becoming a prolific director himself; the photographer David Montgomery, celebrated for his photos of rock legends like The Who, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix, whose studio Antonioni visited to witness first-hand the techniques of fashion photography; and Jill Kennington, one of the most frequently photographed models on the London scene, who took part in one of Blow up’s most famous scenes.
