Searching for Posada: ART and Revolutions
A Documentary Film Screening

This film tells the story of Mexican artist and printmaker José Guadalupe Posada (1852-1913) who while working for Mexican publisher Antonio Vanegas Arroyo (1852-1917) created a vast portfolio of work. Posada’s illustrations inspired and significantly influenced the graphic images of social movements from battling fascism, to protesting wars and crusading for civil rights. The documentary reveals hidden aspects of the famed artist’s life and legacy, and his connections to everything from the Cuban Revolution to the Grateful Dead.
