The films of Richard Linklater, among other things, are known for their powerful images. With Linklater’s newest film Everybody Wants Some premiering at the South By Southwest Film Festival (March 11 - March 20, 2016), a bunch of artists is endeavoring to reimagine Linklater movie posters for Mondo Gallery’s show No Longer/Not Yet--a tribute to the filmmaker's work.
Mondo artists have a tradition of designing the exclusive posters for the films screened at South By Southwest shows. Their Disney-themed exhibition was such a hit that collectors had to wait for days to get their hands on the limited-edition prints.
Linklater's previous film Boyhood, for which he shot intermittently for as long as eleven years, was a thumping triumph of creative vision and an undisputed landmark in modern cinema. Linklater is one of the few contemporary filmmakers who have mastered the art of storytelling, and whether it’s about presenting the chapters from a great man’s life (as he accomplished ever so playfully in Me and Orson Welles), or depicting a special day in the lives of a bunch of high school kids (as he beautifully depicted in Dazed and Confused), he, without fail, is up to the mark.
No Longer/Not Yet will feature redesigns of posters for some of Linklater’s classic films including Bernie, Slacker, Dazed and Confused, and Boyhood.
