This silkscreen by Juan Diaz emphasizes the central, heroic figure of a woman carrying a child. Released in 1955, the film is an adaptation of a short story by Rene Marques in the anthology "Cinco Cuentos de Miedo" (Five Frightful Tales), which was distributed in rural communities in 1954. Using melodrama, the storyline validates medical science and health education in the face of traditional healing beliefs and "superstitions". (From exhibition text by Marvette Perez.)

Place:

Date:

Scope and Contents:
This poster advertising the film "Juan Sin Seso" ("Brainless John"), has a minimalist design, relying on text to form the illustration. The image presents a profile of a man's head with a hollow space instead of a brain, crammed with the words "propaganda" and "si" ("yes"). Ironically, the film utilizes elements of propaganda to argue against it. This film was shown in 1960 in Melbourne, Venice, and Edinburgh Film Festivals. (Based on exhibition text by Marvette Perez.)
