Six Girls Seeking Shelter Movie Poster

Stenberg-brothers-six-girls-are-looking-for-a-shelter-vintage-constructivism-poster
Not a film I’d heard of before, but the poster makes me want to seek out “Six Girls Seeking Shelter”.


The film is by the director Hans Behrendt, but the glorious artwork from 1927 is by the Stenberg brothers. This piece is typical of their work, which uses a distortion of perspective, elements from Dada photomontage, an exaggerated scale, and a bold use of colour and typography. The Stenberg brothers were pioneers of Constructivism and worked as a huge range of design fields, but their poster designs for Soviet cinema is their best work. This poster is available in two sizes, 33cm by 30cm (£11) or 46cm by 42cm (£13).
