Founded in 1959, the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry (ICAIC) created a vibrant film industry on the island. It also encouraged an approach to film posters that favored an expressive, graphic arts style. Unlike traditional film posters, made by lithography since the earliest days, ICAIC posters continue to be produced by hand, employing the screen printing method. In 2015, we visited the workshop.
