Venice Film Festival Unveils Arty Poster Featuring Nastassja Kinski, Jean-Pierre Leaud

ROME – The Venice Film Festival has unveiled the poster for its 72nd edition which pays tribute to actress Nastassja Kinski and, in the background, France’s Jean-Pierre Leaud in the final frame of Francois Truffaut’s “The Four Hundred Blows.”

Both are art-house cinema icons. Nastassja Kinski is meant to encapsulate indie cinema in the 80’s. “The film might be ‘Paris, Texas’ by Wim Wenders,” the fest said in a statement.

In the background is a tiny portrait of Leaud, who was the star of last year’s Venice poster. Recent Venice posters are all by Italian graphic designer and director Simone Massi, also author of the fest’s signature opening visuals, shown before each screening.

The Venice fest will run September 2-12 2015. The lineup will be announced July 29.
