Posteritati will present an exhibition of Polish movie posters in conjunction with Milestone Films’ 21-film retrospective Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema. Poland’s 20th century cinematic history—as explored by Mr. Scorsese in this series—offers expressions of boundless creativity in the midst of political upheaval that is firmly reflected in its long tradition of boundary-pushing movie poster design. The great Polish directors Andrzej Wajda, Krzysztof Zanussi, Wojciech Jerzy Has, Krzysztof Kieslowski, and others—whose work is represented in this series—relied on a coterie of visionary artists to transfer the creativity at work on screen onto paper. Artists represented in the exhibit include Wojciech Fangor (Ashes and Diamonds, 1958), Franciszek Starowieyski (The Hourglass Sanatorium, 1973), Roman Cieślewicz (Black Cross, 1960), Waldemar Świerzy (Mother Joan of the Angels, 1961), Andrzej Pągowski (A Short Film About Killing, 1988), and others.
