Famous artists who left their mark on their universe of the seventh art.
Today, very few people go to movie theaters and the film industry is only growing thanks to empty entertainment, where movies of the past are still censored. Nevertheless, auteur cinema and its artistic legacy will continue to live on.
Thus, I invite movie buffs and anyone who wants to learn a thing or two about movie poster design to come and see this exhibition!
