CLIENT: Crystal City Entertainment
PROJECT: Festival Poster
The documentary tells the story of Yonatan Netanyahu, a commander in the Israeli army who was killed during Operation Entebbe. The film uses a collection of Yoni’s letters home to help paint a softer, more poetic portrait of the hero, so it seemed fitting for the artwork do the same. Since it was a bio doc, the filmmakers were passionate about using a photo of Yoni and sent over a beautiful snapshot of the solider sitting alone on a rocky landscape. To bring the old, black and white photo to life, we worked it into a vibrant blue sky backdrop and filled the top two-thirds of the poster with a abstract shapes made up of Yoni’s handwritten letters.
