Cinema For Gaza Puts Up ‘Joker’ Poster & ‘Crown’ Script For Auction


The Cinema for Gaza auction has added a Joker poster signed by Joaquin Phoenix and a Crown script signed by Emma Corrin, as it passes more than $200,000 donations.

The campaign was launched last week by UK film professionals Hanna Flint, Julia Jackman, Leila Latif, Sophie Monks Kaufman and Helen Simmons, and has immediately taken off with works from the likes of Jonathan Glazer, Spike Lee and Tessa Thompson. The organizers had no backing or budget and largely organized efforts over a WhatsApp group chat launched over dinner in February.

The auction’s final lots now feature a Joker poster signed by Phoenix, a You Were Never Really Here poster signed by Phoenix and Lynne Ramsay, a Crown script signed by Emma Corrin, who played Princess Diana, a custom Cinema for Gaza painting by American History X director Tony Kaye and a chat with writer-comedian Julio Torres and custom tattoo design.

The organizers said: “The small team of volunteers is incredibly moved and inspired by the generosity of both donors and bidders. Hannah Farr, Hanna Flint, Julia Jackman, Leila Latif, Sophie Monks Kaufman and Helen Simmons are proud to have facilitated the very best of our industry contributing vital aid via Medical Aid For Palestinians – the only NGO currently operating in the north of Gaza.”

The auction is now closed.

The Joker poster in particular is likely to attract big interest with the debut trailer of sequel Joker: Folie à Deux starring Phoenix and Lady Gaga launching yesterday.

Corrin’s work has previously been sold at auction via a Crown sale that saw 450 props and costumes put up, with profits used to fund a National Film and Television School (NFTS) scholarship for the next 20 years.
