Iconic silkscreen poster made in Havana by the Cuba Art Master BACHS for the classic 1985 animated Cuban film Vampiros en la Habana (Vampires in Havana) made by the legendary Cuban animated film director Juan Padrón (1947-2020).


"Vampiros en la Habana" is a hilarious low-budget spoof of vampire and gangster A scientist invents a potion that allows vampires to live under the rays of the sun. When word gets out to the vampires of the world, they fly to Cuba to gain control of the potion. A battle unfolds between the American vampires (portrayed as Chicago mobsters) and East European vampires, giving the film a campy Cold War flavor.
