Masterpieces of Polish Cinema is a season of films presented by Martin Scorsese. They are films by respected Polish directors spanning the 1960s through to the 1980s which influenced him in some way. We were asked to create a flyer for the Showroom Cinema which included a poster and timeline of the film release dates.
The timescales were tight for the project so we were limited to how much material we could digest in order to research thoroughly. Our approach was to focus on the dark iconic imagery common in classic Polish cinema posters. We selected the image from Ashes And Diamonds, because nothing said ‘subversion’ quite like messing around with religious iconography.
