Propaganda Posters for “Selma” Get Back to the Roots

There have a whole mess of issues surrounding both the release and Oscar nominations of Ava DuVernay’s Martin Luther King Jr. biopic Selma. Accusations have been fired at the film for misrepresentations and at the Academy for lacking in diversity, but at the heart of all of this is a film that should be watched by audiences. So it’s great to see that some energy has been put into promotion of the feature.

Movielicious has reported on four new propaganda-style posters for Selma, including stylised depictions of David Oyelowo and Tom Wilkinson. These posters get to the meat of what the film is supposed to be about and they hark back to famous footage of King. Check them out, courtesy of Movielicious:
