Poster, Noc na Ziemi [Night on Earth], 1992
Andrzej Klimowski asserts that for an illustration to be good, it must respond to its subject in new and innovative ways. His poster design for this film’s Polish release takes its basic plot of five vignettes, in five cabs, in five cities around the world, and abstracts it. His collage takes the viewer out into space to watch the cabs circle a globe, while a figure (perhaps the film’s director Jim Jarmusch) holds his gaze, as if the viewer has a private invitation to observe the action.
