Germain Lussier over at /Film broke the news yesterday about the new Olly Moss posters coming from Mondo this Friday. And right after he announced it on Twitter, Twitter was down for about an hour. I shot him a message accusing him of breaking Twitter and he just laughed. Any way details from Germain.
Mondo has now put those talents to work on an even more exciting announcement. The poster boutique will start releasing posters for the gorgeous and influential films of Studio Ghibli and the first poster, by Moss, is for Hayao Miyazaki‘s classic My Neighbor Totoro. Totoro, along with many other Miyazaki and Ghibli films, are getting 35mm re-releases in theaters soon.
Check out Moss’ new poster, find out how to get one and read more about Mondo’s latest.
Here are Moss’ My Neighbor Totoro posters. The pinkish one, with English writing, is the regular and the green one, with Japanese writing, is the variant.
These are both 20 x 36 inch screenprints. The regular has an edition of 400 and costs $50 and the variant is an edition of 150 and costs $90. The madness begins sometime on Friday Dec. 16 when these beauties go on sale.
The release coincides with the beginning of the Ghibli retrospective at the IFC Center in New York City which runs Friday through Thursday, January 12. Fifteen classic films have had new 35mm prints struck and will travel to Los Angeles, Boston, Toronto, San Francisco, Washington DC, Chicago, Seattle and more after New York. More information can be found here.
And best of all, all proceeds from this print sale will go to the non-profit organization the Ghetto Film School, “an organization of educators and students who share a love for storytelling and film making.”
