Hotel Rwanda

Africa Faces Africa

Hotel Rwanda biopics the conflict between Hutus and Tutsis during 1994. The film distribution company just wanted an adaptation of the international posters. We did it, but we also decided to present this two posters. Thinking the high violence broadcasted

during the period, we try to avoid any usage of blood, violence and common topics. The concept was clearly poping up in our minds, two Africas face to face… and then we decided to go for this two bold and clean concepts. It strength is built using the pieces of Africa as only items. Spain was the only country that show this two award-winning posters instead the adaptations.
