Original Copy



Exhibition and Documentary

Location: Filmhuis Den Haag
Period: 5 - 9 October 2016

In the heart of Mumbai lives Sheikh Rehman, the city's last painter of film posters. His studio is run in the old masters' style - behind the screen of an old Hindi-Film cinema. Here, Rehman is both artist and guru, comedian and philosopher. But Rehman's world is at risk. Today's film posters are printed on plastic, and his audiences are being kept away by new high-rise buildings. It's a hopeless struggle, but Rehman won't give up ...

The posters are showing the movies: PADOSAN, PYAASA, BOBBY, GUIDE, BARSAAT, MUGHAL-E-AZAM, PALKI and AL-MARA.

“Our documentary Original Copy is a sensitive portrayal of the magic of film, its transience and its immortality. A tribute to the art of indian film posters, which is vanishing today. Alongside with the screening of Original Copy, we will exhibit 8 handmade oil paintings and 4 drawings coming directly out of Rehmans studio in Mumbai.”
