Beyond Barriers / Esperanza sin fronteras is a documentary film that tells the story of a small healthcare clinic in Naco, Sonora, where the hopes and struggles bring people from opposite sides of the border wall together. The key objective to promote the film was to create a compelling poster design, which would be displayed at film festivals.
The design visually communicates the human connection of the Naco, Sonora community that transcends the physical barrier of the border wall between the United States and Mexico.
The poster design has promoted the film in the U.S. and Europe, including the film being awarded for Official Selection at the Cannes Short Film Festival 2019. The key art was also used for social media, digital, and PBS video on demand artwork. The Client reaction: “Through this poster design, Renee did a fabulous job at capturing the essence of the film “Beyond Barriers.” Her creativity allows us to imagine the possibilities that exist beyond any barriers that block our vision."
