Presented in conjunction with this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Brian De Palma, HIFF is proud to present a special screening of the director’s 1981 suspense masterpiece.

During a late-night recording session in a Philadelphia park, sound effects technician Jack Terry (John Travolta) witnesses a car plunge into a nearby creek, leaving the driver dead and a passenger injured. While going over the night’s recordings, Jack discovers a piece of information suggesting the crash may have been anything but accidental, leading him on a mission to uncover a web of political conspiracy and assassination. Co-starring Nancy Allen and John Lithgow, BLOW OUT is a classic of 1980s American paranoia and a career high for De Palma.
