Polish born film maker Roman Polanski has been one of my very favourite directors ever since seeing “The Tenant” at the age of 14. That movie profoundly shaped my world view and its’ emotional impact was undeniable. As with most of Polanski’s films, it is the pure emotion of them that really stays with you long after the film is over. That is all one can really ask of an artist.
A few years ago, I was in Krakow, Poland and stumbled upon and exhibit of Polanski’s film posters from around the world. Not only are the films great, but these posters also capture the golden age of film poster design from around the world.
