Wojna Spotting

Polish movie posters are highly sought-after by film-art collectors around the world, due to their highly imaginative graphic design which favors artists’ interpretations over literal meaning. While that tradition is definitely still alive in Poland (though to a lesser degree nowadays), the country’s cinemas have not been immune to the global McPoster epidemic,  nor to lazy designers and quick-buck producers. Every nation’s movie-art has its share of knock-offs, ‘inspired-bys’ and blatant copies, but I find it particularly interesting to see this trashy, exploitative side of Polish poster art, which rightfully gets swept under the rug.
