The exhibition of the Czechoslovakian film posters for American Slapsticks took place in the scope of 10th Archive Films Seminary in Uherské Hradiště. Since 60´s has been American Slapstick often distributed in Czech cinemas because of their political neutrality and posters for these films were largely sought-after.
