The Other Side of the Poster offers a closer look at Poland’s film poster design that became world-famous at the end of the 1960s. Artist such as Waldemar Swierzy, Franciszek Starowieyski or Henryk Tomaszewski are still recognized among the top film poster designers of the so-called “Polish School of Posters”. The documentary presents broader context to the phenomenon and introduces the main representatives of the movement who helped to develop the Polish poster art.
