Pune: National Film Archives of India (NFAI) will screen rare footage of the freedom struggle on Sunday, August 13. There will also be a poster exhibition depicting India’s freedom movement and a live demo of the process of hand painting film posters.
The exhibition will feature posters of 20 films from different eras and languages, including Pehla Admi (1950), Andolan (1951) and Anandmath (1952). Hand-painted film posters are an artform unto themselves. Before photographic posters became commonplace, hand-painted posters were widely used for film publicity.
