Not On View



This poster was not designed for an actual screening of the film, but part of a 2009 portfolio by several well-known designers asked to create a poster for a film of their choosing.


Between about 1969 and 2019, acquired by Sandra Levinson, Center for Cuban Studies, Cuban Art Space, New York [see note]; 2019, sold by the Center for Cuban Studies to the MFA. (Accession Date: February 20, 2019)

NOTE: This comes from a large group of posters assembled over five decades. Many were acquired in the 1970s by gift or purchase from the artist, printer, or publisher; others were purchased more recently on the market in Cuba.
