Amazing movie posters for Black Swan


My husband and I had the pleasure of attending a screening of Black Swan at the premier of the Philadelphia Film Festival on October 14. The film was stunning, scary, beautiful and grotesque. Following the screening we were treated to the unique experience of a Q & A with the director, Darren Aronofsky. After experiencing the film, I was thrilled to learn about these gorgeous limited edition posters by La Boca. These designs successfully incorporate the high art of ballet with a retro nod to the theatrical history of Black Swan. I love that they used different fonts—mainly gothic and from the early 20th century—for each poster. The strong contrasts, blood red type, and vacant human forms put me on edge, much like the horrific scenes from the film. I think the poster designers deserve an Oscar category after seeing these.
