“An Art Deco interpretation of an ancient epic text by a turn-of-the-century Austrian filmmaker is so up my alley it’s almost ridiculous. Working on these posters was an absolute treat.
"The most striking thing to me about the two films of DIE NIBELUNGEN was how different in tone the story becomes as the focus shifts from Siegfried to Kriemhild. The first is very direct and immediate, the second is much more twisting and difficult.
"I’ve designed the posters with that in mind, aiming for a unity of style between them while still reflecting that contrast in tone and in the characterisation of the leading figures. The color scheme is inspired by the warm golden tones laid over the black and white in the original version of the films.
"These two posters are meant to be together, but I hope that each will stand on its own as an homage to what’s become a favourite film of mine.” - Peter Diamond
