Inglourious Basterds is a 2009 WWII film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. Since it’s release it has gained a lot of attention. But with the tragedy that occurred in Haiti recently, the movie has brought forth another reason to give attention to it.
Tarantino, along with the Upper Playground Company and The Weinstein Company, have come together to form an event called The Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds, which is an art show made to support the Haiti relief. All proceeds from the event go to The American Red Cross to help victims of the earthquake.
The art show that revolves around the Best Picture nominee consists of many artistic movie posters made by a great number of artists. Each poster has only six prints copied. To make them even more of a prized possession, each print is numbered and signed by Quentin Tarantino himself.
The event takes place on February 18th 2010, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM in Downtown L.A., at The Upper Playground art gallery. If only more movies had the ability to inspire artists to go to such great lengths for a vital charity!
