This poster was kept flat in a temperature controlled room for the last 10 years. Some flaws like small tears in the border, cracks in the silkscreen paint, pinhole bug bites and water stains are very common in Cuban posters due to the humid/hot weather. It is very difficult to find an original silkscreen from the 60's and 70's. And almost impossible to find it in pristine condition. In the majority of titles, only 250-500 handmade posters were ever printed and except for a selected group of collectors, most people disposed of them by dressing walls or recycling.
Only a fraction of those survived until now. This is one of the very few. Japanese film directed by Hirokazu Ichimura.

This original poster belongs to a collection that was started by my husbands grandmother in 1973 and it was brought by us to the Unites States from 1998 to 2012 in small batches, due to Cuban and U. S government restrictions on importing or exporting art from the island. Each batch was processed by the Cuban government entity Registro Nacional de Bienes Culturales de la República de Cuba that dates from 1998 to 2012 under my name and my husbands name as permits to take the posters to the United States. I have links in my webpage with pictures of many of the receipts as proof of provenance. During more than 20 years I befriended many of the artists and collectors, read every book and article I could have my hands on and acquired the knowledge to stand by the authenticity of my collection.
