Michelangelo Antonioni

“The so-called `film idiom`and the so called `television idiom` will end up coming together. On the one hand, we see large movie theaters being broken into many small ones and screens, once huge becoming very much smaller. On the other, we see television screens becoming larger and larger. So when the screens in our homes and the movie screens become the same size, there will be no need to separate the expressive needs of television from those of films, because they´ll be the same. The exploitation of films will be the same, both in our homes and in our theatres. Our purpose will still be to make films, because that’s what they´ll have to show.” (Michelangelo Antonioni in December 1985 in one interview)
