Lagrimas En El Lago - Oliva 1968

Lagrimas en el Lago (Tears in the Lake / Umi no koto) is a Japanese film about a young girl who's love life turns bad when her lover is drafted into the army and she is seduced by an older man. She eventually drowns herself in sorrow. This 1968 poster makes great use of only three colours and is typical of Raul Oliva's work during the late 60s for the ICAIC that references the San Fransisco style. The Japanese girl is set in a work that imitates the psychedelic art of the great Fillmore posters, which in turn were paying homage to art nouveau.
