Was David Bailey the inspiration for the central character in the film Blow Up? Style guru, lecturer, author and photographer Ted Polhemus provides his viewpoint, as the first special guest to share his choice of influential film in a new Formative Film season at the Electric Palace cinema in Hastings Old Town. Starting this Friday 20 October, Polhemus will present Michaelangelo Antonioni’s 1966 iconic film, Blow Up, a countercultural masterpiece set in the streets of swinging London. Annie Waite speaks with the social commentator Polhemus about why the “film about style which gets just about every element of styling spot on” changed his life.
