Film: Blow-Up (1966)
  • Jill Craigie Cinema, Roland Levinsky Building

Save event

A successful mod photographer in London is bored with what would now be seen as a ‘celebrity lifestyle’. Whilst photographing a couple embracing in the park, he discovers he may have captured a murder and he blows up his negatives, uncovering details and finally putting the puzzle together.
