Poster for the first release of the movie in Hungary.

Visions of Eight is a film about the personal dreams which make the Olympic Games transcend the physical into the spiritual. when granted the authority to record the 1972 official film of the Games, the Wolper Organization elected to eschew the traditional documentary approach in favour of the human stories spelled out during the contests. Although the cameras recorded the tragic events surrounding the death of the Israeli athletes, the film remains a non - political tribute to all the contestants and to the spirit of the Olympic Games. Previous Olympic films were essentially sports reportage, an area now amply covered by television. This film is seen through the eyes of eight great directors, each of whom interpreted that part of the Olympiad spectacle that interested them most. The eight directors are: Milos Forman, Kon Ichikawa, Claude Lelouch, Yuriy Ozerov, Arthur Penn, Michael Pfleghar, John Schlesinger, Mai Zetterling. (source: The poster was designed by Andras Mate, who created many very decorative movie posters. He often used variations of colourful stripes to create an eye-catching visual effect. This idea is apparent on this poster as well.
