eBay watch: Vintage Cuban movie posters

Cuba1

Something a little different for our eBay pick today – although there's no denying that these vintage Cuban movie posters are incredibly eye-catching.


The posters are all produced by the ICAIC (Cuban Institute of Film), with the seller picking them up from Cuba, selling a few off to fund further purchases. Eras and movies vary and as most are Cuban movies, there's a good chance you'll not know the films featured. But the artwork is stunning  and would look great in the right right retro setting.

All the posters are all 20 x 30 inches in size, original and official silkscreen prints from the Institute itself (not copies), but are probably from 're-run productions', so the colours are still strong.

The one above is Julieta De Los Espiritus (Juliet Of The Spirits) from 1967, while the one below is Los Pajaros Tirandole A La Escopeta (The Birds Pulling The Shotgun), which dates from 1984. See details of those and the others on the listing pages, with all the posters currently at £30.
