Astataion ou Le festin des morts

Canada: National Film Board of Canada, 1965. Original souvenir program, printed in Canada, for the 1965 Canadian film. These programs saw popularity beginning in the 1960s and continued to be produced until the early 1980s and the ever-growing VHS market, with a particularly high distribution in Asian countries. This example is French language, square in shape (versus the normal rectangular), card stock.

Shot on location in Canada.

10 x 10 inches, printed card stock in black, purple and blue, gatefold. Very Good plus, with light foxing and rubbing overall. Scarce.
