[on whether Red Desert
(1964) is an attack on modern society] It simplifies things too much (as many have done) to say that I accuse this inhuman, industrialized world in which the individual is crushed and led to neurosis.

After his death, Antonioni's body lay in state at the City Hall in Rome. His funeral was held in the cathedral of San Giorgio in his home town of Ferrara. He is buried next to his parents in the Certosa cemetary in Ferrara.
