Movie poster for WERTHER EFFECT a movie directed by João Pedro Vale and Nuno Alexandre Ferreira (http://www.joaopedrovale.com).
Werther Effect is a movie and an exhibition that combines the universe of Goethe's book: - "The Sorrows of Young Werther", his color theories, his connection with Weimar, the city where Bauhaus was born and Bauhaus itself. Werther Effect was also the name of a series of copycat suicides that happened after the book was published. Graphically the movie picks on Oskar Schlemmer's Triadic Ballet as the background and narrative that grows into other spacial situations.
The poster design was inspired in the above mentioned Triadic Ballet and Bauhaus principles.
