No one makes us travel as much as the seventh art. And behind the wheel of this fantastic journey are film directors, who with their unique visual styles, with their aesthetic features and with their iconic film locations take us to other worlds without having to move from our home. That we all know and dream of touring the streets of New York, thanks to the big screen, it's a fact.
Destinations become shooting sets that invite us to catch a flight and travel in search of them, to cross the border between fiction and reality . The films have the wonderful ability to make us know distant lands in just a couple of hours. Travel and cinema have always shaken hands.
For this reason, NeoMam Studios has once again launched its creativity and, in collaboration with The Big Domain, has imagined how seven prestigious filmmakers would promote the locations of their own films through seven posters . For this they have designed a series of original posters that perfectly represent the traveling spirit of each director.
