Cinematography of ex-Yugoslavian countries is represented especially by wonderful posters by Josef Vyleťal (The Flight of the Dead Bird, The Sun In The Strange Sky, Doktor Mladen etc.).
Those were mostly films by Ingmar Bergman that stirred fantasy of many Czech artists and inspired them to create their top works (The Seventh Seal, Shame, Persona,Cries and Whispers, The Silence, Smiles of a Summer Night.).
