December 24, 2018

TEHRAN – An exhibition of Iranian film posters is currently underway at the Svetozor Cinema in Prague, Czech Republic.

Over 50 original posters of films produced by the Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults during the 1970s and 1990s have been selected for the exhibition, the Iranian curator of the exhibit, Ali Bakhtiari, said in a press release on Monday. 

Posters for “Wooden Pistols” by Shapur Qarib, “Black and White” by Sohrab Shahid-Saless and “Key” by Ebrahim Foruzesh are seen in the collection.

In addition, posters for Abbas Kiarostami’s movies “Homework”, “Life and Nothing More” and “A Wedding Suit” are on view at the exhibition.

Most of the posters have been created by Kiarostami and other Iranian artists such as Morteza Momayyez, Farshid Mesqali and Ebrahim Haqiqi.

The exhibit, which will be running until January 20, 2019, is a prelude to an Iranian film festival that will take place in Czech and Slovakia from January 15 to 26.
