Film producers in the Soviet Union enjoyed more independence and freedom under glasnost. This poster promoted the Andrei Tarkovsky film “Sacrifice.” The character, Alexander, celebrates his birthday with his family at his remote cottage. When low-flying airplanes signal the start of nuclear war between superpowers, Alexander searches for a way to restore peace. His search includes a visit to the solitary Maria, who is said to be a witch.
Design: I. Maystrovsky, 1988.
