Hand Printed poster (screenprint) for the 13th Havana Film Festival designed by Roberto Matta.
Since December 1978 Cuba has celebrated it's love of 'las peliculas' with an annual Film Festival. Since 1960, the love of cinema was expressed in posters which have the ability to stand alone from the event or movie they promote. In this sense, 'las affiches del cine Cubana' are collected as works of art.
The posters were printed in the Cuban Film Institute Silkscreen Workshop (1960 -2015) where the screens were hand cut by skilled craftsmen and craftswomen from scaled designs drawn by the artist. The poster has texture as you can feel the thickness of the ink/paint of each layer.
Overall good condition, slightly yellowed along the edges, one small tear at the bottom and a few pinholes.
Note: Limited numbered edition, not signed by Matta.
