Official posters for the 61st New York Film Festival by iconic filmmaker Jim Jarmusch—director of seven NYFF selections including NYFF24 Opening Night film Down by Law—available now exclusively at Posteritati. A limited number of posters will be available for purchase during the festival at Film at Lincoln Center’s merchandise store located in Alice Tully Hall.
Jarmusch: "For this poster the image was pulled from the files of several thousand useless photographs I’ve taken since getting my hands on a camera as a teenager. I consider them to be useless not necessarily in a negative way, but because they’ve almost never had any intended ‘use.’ Most of my favorites are random, playful, or accidental. This one’s from the late ’70s, an incidental portrait of a friend, hiding her face with a Japanese album cover from the 1960s. Its image is of film star Yûzô Kayama (The Sword of Doom, Red Beard, Sanjuro, etc.) and rock musician (!)—an LP of his psychedelic surf band, The Launchers."
