Cuban movie posters were made using the handmade silkscreen process. Aesthetically, the paint, applied in thick layers gave these posters a unique texture that is closer to a painting than to posters. Artistically they are among the best designed in the world and many prizes were awarded to their creators.

Only a fraction of those survived until now. This is one of the very few. TITLE: Destellos de la espada de Ichi. Japanese film directed by Kazuo Ikehiro.
