film poster for the short film, the eighth year of the emergency.
maureen towey's short film 'the 8th year of the emergency' is about an elderly woman losing her mind to dementia. after much discussion about how best to approach a poster for this delicate and generous film, we settled on the idea of gently erasing a drawing of the lead actress's face. the drawing was made by caspar's father thomas newbolt in england, and then erased by caspar in new york.
