‘Everything breathes CINEMA here’ commented Gerda Peters on her first visit tot the GDI last Sunday. Gerda is the wife of film lecturer and festival programmer Harry Peters who will be donating his massive documentation archive to GDI later in the year.









Upon their visit last Sunday, they already brought Harry’s extensive collection of film posters designed by the French Maitre de l’Affiche René Ferracci (1927-1982). Among these a copy of GARDE A VUE signed by Ferracci shortly before his demise. Together with the Ferracci posters already in our collection we now have some 200 of the approximately 1200 film poster Ferracci designed in his life.
