US street artist Shepard Fairey has created a poster for Luc Bessons new film, The Lady, about Burmese pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi. The image is based on his previous work of Ms Suu Kyi but has been changed to represent Michelle Yeoh who plays the politician in the film. Fairey told the Los Angeles Times he was psyched to support the film after being asked to design the poster. He created an iconic image of Barack Obama during the 2008 US elections. The Lady will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month. It will also open the Rome Film Festival on 27 October. The film recounts the political and personal odyssey of Ms Suu Kyi as she chooses whether to return to England to nurse her sick husband or to carry on fighting for democracy in Burma. BBC
