the spirit of the times
This is it, our first special announcement of 2012… we’re VERY proud to present the official U.S. poster for Elena (dir. Andrey Zvyagintsev). It’s by Sam Smith, who you might already know from his many other beautiful and/or hilarious posters, OR from his percussion activities as the drummer for Ben Folds, The Comfies, and My So-Called Band. Busy guy!
As for the film, you can see the trailer if you click through the poster image (after you spend the appropriate 8-11 minutes appreciating how pretty it is, of course).
Elena won Cannes’ Un Certain Regard Special Jury Prize last year, and it opens May 16 at Film Forum!
Middle of the week got you feeling a bit “blah?” Here’s a smattering of things we love to get you through til Fun Friday!
