Stolen Kisses Cuban poster by René Azcuy Cardénas (1970), U.S. one-sheet, designer unknown (1969)

This month The Poster Boys survey the golden age of Cuban posters, created during and after the Cuban Revolution. In addition to the iconic social and political posters that celebrated Cuba’s cultural pride and solidarity with other nations, hundreds of silkscreen film posters were produced during the ’60s that reflected the distinct styles and humble ingenuity of Cuba’s great poster artists.

In this episode, Brandon and Sam reflect on the creative processes of these artists and appreciate how much their posters have influenced their own personal philosophies as designers. And in this month’s trip to the Flat File, we take a look at the Cuban poster for Stolen Kisses (above), one of Sam’s top design picks, plus the other international posters for François Truffaut’s 1968 film.
