What happened to the illustrated movie poster? Where did it disappear to, and why? Interviews with art personalities from the past four decades seeks to answer those questions and explore the birth, death, and resurrection of illustrated movie poster art.
In the mid 2000s, filling the void left behind by Hollywood’s abandonment of illustrated movie posters, independent artists and galleries began selling limited edition, screenprinted posters – a movement that has quickly exploded into a booming industry with prints selling out online in seconds, inspiring Hollywood studios to take notice of illustration in movie posters once more.
_“…an entertaining film primarily about the renaissance of posters and its artists who don’t restrict themselves.” _- Leonard Maltin
