The Grand Iluzjon

If the names Flisak, Mlodozeniec, and Swierzy make your eyeballs go in a tizzy, then you’ll be thrilled to witness the Iluzjon of beautiful Polish movie posters on display at 18 Hewett Street in London this week (Oct. 19-29), compliments of EyeSeaPosters and Protein.

There’s also a special preview night on Oct. 18 where I’m sure the Polish vodka will be honored as well!

Double Barrel, baby!

What does the USA French one-sheet for Sugarland Express (thanks, Eatbrie!) and the Polish poster for River of No Return have in common?

Film Art From Behind the Iron Curtain

Movie poster fans, tear down those walls! If you happen to be anywhere near South Carolina this fall, then be sure to check out Dr. Matthew Johnston’s exquisite exhibition of Eastern European movie posters at Wofford College.

And for those unable to see the show in person, there’s always Pinterest! (APF)
