In conjunction with the release of its psychological thriller m o t h e r !, Paramount Pictures worked with Talenthouse, a leading open-source creative platform whose artists from around the world were invited to translate Darren Aronofsky's new film.
Each artist was given the audio from the first trailer as inspiration and the results are astounding. One of the 12 artists is Philippines' own Edz Gatdula
whose tribute poster for m o t h e r ! appears below.
Edz Gatdula is a talented artist who joined Talenthouse only a couple months ago and caught the Talenthouse and Paramount teams’ attention right away with beautiful, dynamic pieces. Edz’ work has gained instant popularity by other artists on Talenthouse, gathering lots of loves and comments commending his creations. Edz has been very grateful, humble and respectful amid all the attention.
Gatdula explains his process in creating his own m o t h e r ! poster: “As I saw the promotional poster of the movie, the first thing that came up in my mind is to use the ESSENCE of a classical art nouveau for my poster, but in a simpler form by having a limited color palette and flat shades, which I normally do in most of my artwork.”
Now playing in Philippine cinemas, the film revolves around Mother (Jennifer Lawrence) and Him (Javier Bardem) who live in a seemingly idyllic existence in a secluded paradise. But the couple’s relationship is tested when man (Ed Harris) and woman (Michelle Pfeiffer) arrive at their home uninvited. Answering that knock disrupts their tranquil existence and as more and more guests arrive, mother is forced to revisit everything she knows about love, devotion and sacrifice.
mother! is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
