[Italy]: Telefilm Canada / Film Auro, 1996. Large folio, 55 x 39" (140 x 99 cm). Pictorial 1p poster, printed on recto only. Folded, as issued, otherwise near fine. Item #WRCLIT72903
A visually striking one panel poster for the 1996 Italian first release of David Cronenberg's award-winning (and controversial) film adaptation of Ballard's novel. The film starred James Spader, Holly Hunter, Elias Kostes, Rosanna Arquette, et al. In addition to a slew of nominations, Cronenberg won the Jury Special Prize at Cannes, and the film and its crew won five Genie awards. This poster proclaims the Cannes award, and accompanied the Italian release in November of 1966; the film saw limited US release in late March of the following year. Of the paper attending the various international releases of this film, this poster tends to be among the most anatomically revealing.
