Poster Still Alive

I designed the poster for Peter van Houten’s film ‘I’m Still Alive’ which had its premiere at the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2012. The film is about an old, bed-ridden woman whose world gradually shrinks.

The poster shows video still where the main character, Jadwiga Kubis Waslicka, can be seen in profile with a white cloth wrapped around her head.

I edited the scarf so it wrapped around her head, shoulders and body, effectively appearing to swaddle her, thus mirroring her restricted and shrinking physical and psychological world.

The film was one of the audience favourites at IFFR2012, and the trailer is available here.
