Art direction and poster design for the film Bagatelle.
Good Hope Films
The Bagatelle poster is visually dissected into two parts—farmland and a barn above, and layers of dark textured ground below in which a cello is buried like a casket. The poster relates the desperate and unnerving state of the main character of this art-house social satire through symbolism and detail.
The final typographic treatment emphasizes the dualities in the film, namely the contrast between rural Texas and the world of classical music.
