CALENDAR OF THE 1920-S AVANT-GARDE FILM POSTERS
For winter holidays – Calendar of the 1920-s Avant-Garde Film Posters from Oleksandr Dovzhenko National Centre. The 2016 calendar features a selection of posters for Ukrainian silent films produced during the rise of the domestic cinema, in the era of the All-Ukrainian Photo and Cinema Administration (VUFKU).
The calendar is a sort of a teaser for the album of Ukrainian film posters – a new project of Dovzhenko Centre, scheduled to be presented early next year.
For the first time, the album looks at film posters of the 1920-s as an artistic and cultural phenomenon in its own right. In addition to offering an opportunity to see a comprehensive collection of unique and little-known film posters, it supplements them with two academic studies that immerse the reader in the historical and artistic context of the day.
