A bridge under construction overpowers the composition of this promotional poster for this film, "The Bridge." This is a later version of a poster originally printed in 1954. Inspired by a true story, and filmed with local, "natural actors," it recounts the efforts of a small flood-prone community. Neighbors organize themselves and collaborate to build a bridge to resolve their chronic problem. This documentary was shown in the Venice Film Festival and the Edinburgh international Film Festival where it was awarded honorable mentions. (From exhibition text by Marvette Perez.)

Scope and Contents:
This silkscreen mimics the look of linoleum, since the artist creates the illusion of texture on the otherwise flat surface typically produced by the silk-screening process. The figure of the mother and child as well as in the man the foreground connects this poster with the tradition of carving religious figures, santos. The film, an adaptation of Rene Marques's short story Los Casos de Ignacio y Santiago (The Stories of Ignacio and Santiago), addresses the absence of community participation and the responsibilities and rights as citizens.
