Polish Film Poster of the Week (8/27-9/2)

Every Monday a new Polish film poster.

This week: After Hours (1987); artist: Andrzej Pagowski.

Ed's 2-Second Analysis: The figure is in danger of being consumed by the spread beak of the bird, mirroring the spread legs the protagonist disappears into at the climax of the film. The bird is doubly coded as a mother, considering how a bird feeds its young.

The Projectionist will mostly be displaying Polish designs for American films. But, for posterity, here's the first week's art, for Kieslowski's Amator (Camera Buff, 1979):

I searched a bit but couldn't find the artist to credit for this brilliant collage. Check back next Monday for a new gem of Polish poster art.
