about

Last Features is the story of forgotten films made during the time of German unification. Under chaotic conditions, a group of young East German filmmakers produced around thirty stylistically diverse films. The publisher provided this cinematic photograph from one of the films and I paired it with the font, Akzidenz Grotesque, in order to keep the composition spare and gray.
