Liberated from the pressure of ensuring the commercial success of the film, the Cuban movie poster captivates with its great artistic freedom and associative images. The reduction of the film’s subject to symbols is the great achievement and typical characteristic of this poster tradition. For his Moby Dick poster, Antonio Reboiro (b. 1935) drew on Pop Art and the psychedelic poster with its ornamental lettering. Instead of the whale as menace, here the theme is the triumph of nature.
