Fe, Esperanza y Caridad is a 1974 Filipino film, produced by Premiere Productions. It is a trilogy featuring Nora Aunor giving life to the stories of three women: Fe—an emerging movie superstar who has an invalid husband—, Esperanza—a young wife living in a middle-class neighborhood in the city—and Caridad—a young novice who was seduced by the devil himself. Each character is associated to either faith, hope and charity - three theological virtues defined by St-Paul in Christian martyrology and theology.
Antonio Fernandez Reboiro (b. 1935) is a renowned Cuban graphic artist best known for the film posters he designed for ICAIC (Instituto Cubano de Arte e Industria Cinematográficos, or Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Arts and Industry), who are responsible for producing posters for all films made in Cuba and for foreign films shown in Cuba. He first studied architecture and design at the University of Havana before becoming a graphic designer, film director, set designer, magazine editor, and architect. His style and technique are highly versatile, ranging from Art Nouveau (like this one, which references Mucha's Medea/Sarah Bernhardt poster!) to minimalist to collage. His posters can be found in museums around the world, including the MoMA in New York, the National Gallery in London, and Paris's Centre National d'Art et de Culture George Pompidou.
