Today the release of the parallel Cannes section poster, perhaps because is a black and white photo or maybe because is an excellent composition but I'm finding 2013 Cannes graphic identity outstanding as the Festival de Cannes poster is amazing and now this section releases another great poster with a great reasoning behind.
Two persons in the middle of the desert, under a distant western sky.
The epitome of Adventure. Two modern-day cow-boys in a motor vehicle.
Or, why not, the vehicle of two filmmakers scouting locations, who briefly, forget their solitude to confront their experience and their destiny under a Fordain sky.
The Quinzaine des Réalisateurs this year will be a meeting place for creative artists in the midst of desire.
And a series of adventures, comedies and tragedies of today.
Life, indeed, but under skies bigger than life, as Nicholas Ray would put it...Movies, in short.
The poster for the 2013 Quinzaine des Réalisateurs was based on a photo by Cécile Burban. Michel Welfringer was in charge of the graphic conception.
Now I'm looking forward to see La Semaine poster as hopefully they will keep similar basic graphic identity.
