FRESA Y CHOCOLATE ( Strawberry & Chocolate ) Silkscreen Movie POSTER
Got this on my recent trip to Cuba this year ! it was purchased in The Mercado, a local-vendor marketplace near the cruise port in Havana. I had no idea about this film till I got home, i purchased because I liked the graphics!
I have come to learn, This poster is made especially for the Cuban film (strawberry and chocolate) in 1993 the direction was by Tomas Gutierrez Alea, this film was the most controversial of that time in Cuba since it was homosexuality in Cuban society and its great backwardness and discrimination in revolutionary Cuba.
where people who did not conform to the regime were discriminated against to the point of leaving the country in order to feel free.
Full poster measures 20" wide x 30" tall, artwork measures approximately 18.5" x 28.25".
It has no pin holes, never hung, very minor edge wear from storage by the vendor i purchased it from.
