Description

"Portrait of Hope” relates this metamorphosis from original artwork into postage stamps. The film shows the Swiss artist, Hans Erni, as he transposes his vision of the theme, "A Future for Refugees”, to the final artwork; the difficulties facing a stamp designer in adapting a design to the dimensions of a postage stamp; and the reactions of both artist and public to the final results.
