Cannes Film Festival 2019 – The Story Behind Posters

Η ιστορία του Φεστιβάλ Καννών μέσα από τις αφίσες του

Since its origin in 1946, each festival has been memorialized by a new official poster. Visible everywhere throughout the city of Cannes during May, the posters have become synonymous with the festival itself with designs sometimes inspired by films, sometimes created by filmmakers and sometimes tributes to icons who’ve been part of the fest.

The poster for the 2019 Cannes Film Festival (May 14-25) pays tribute to director Agnes Varda, who died aged 90 last month.

The poster shows Varda standing on the shoulders of a technician, shooting her first film La Pointe Courte in 1954 when she was 26 years old. The film would screen at the Cannes Film Festival the following year.

Το Φεστιβάλ των Καννών απέδειξε ότι διατηρεί εξαιρετικά αντανακλαστικά και (αποχαιρετά και) αφιερώνει στην Ανιές Βαρντά, αποτυπώνοντας στην επίσημη αφίσα του, μια φωτογραφία από την 26χρονη -τότε- δημιουργό από γυρίσματα της πρώτης της ταινίας, «La Pointe Courte».

Κόκκινο χαλί, λαμπερές παρουσίες, ακριβά φορέματα, πολυτελή αξεσουάρ, μυθικά πάρτι. Πέρα από το κινηματογραφικό ενδιαφέρον, το Φεστιβάλ Καννών συγκεντρώνει τα βλέμματα όχι μόνο για όσα συμβαίνουν στη μεγάλη οθόνη, αλλά και για όσα συμβαίνουν έξω από τις αίθουσες.

Αν κάτι όμως κεντρίζει το ενδιαφέρον κι όσων ασχολούνται με το καλλιτεχνικό κομμάτι του φεστιβάλ αλλά κι όσων ασχολούνται με τη lifestyle πλευρά του, αυτό είναι οι αφίσες της ιστορικής διοργάνωσης.

Those who hate other religions, hate other traditions do not know that each tradition, each religion, each experience that people have with the Higher Worlds is just a part of the whole puzzle.

They must put them together so that eventually they see the whole picture.

Imigongo … art from ….cow dung

.

Imigongo (Kinyarwanda: [imiɡoːŋɡo]) is an art form popular in Rwanda traditionally made by women using cow dung. Often in the colors black, white and red, popular themes include spiral and geometric designs that are painted on walls, pottery, and canvas.

 

 

The images are produced using cow dung which is put onto wooden boards in spiral and geometric designs. The dung is left to harden and is then decorated using colours made from organic material. The traditional colours are black, white, red, grey and beige-yellow but increasingly other colours are used. Continue reading
