DHEEPAN POSTER FOR CINEMA POSTER AWARDS
I have participated in a contest "Cinema Poster Awards" with a poster for "Dheepan" movie. My poster tells a story of a farewell to the past and an entry into a new life. In protagonist's dreams, the Elephant is a powerful symbol of his homeland and resilience.
As his country is recovering from a bloody conflict, red colour stands for the complicated aftermath of a civil war. Dheepan's legacy as a soldier also has a bloody trace. Having fled from the conflict zone, he starts a new life and has to overcome new obstacles; still he manages to reinvent himself and create a new family in a new country.
