Architecture and ideology

I made this poster for festival screenings and the promotion of MDM, a documentary film by my good friend Eric Bednarski. The title refers to the MarszaƂkowska Housing District, a Social-Realist district built in central Warsaw in the 1950s. "Conceived on a monumental scale as a model of socialist planning and an architectural showpiece for the new Soviet-backed Communist regime, it rose up from the ruins of a city almost completely destroyed in World War II." Eric lives in Canada and works for the National Film Board.
