Assembly of Hand-Painted Movie Posters From Africa
SUPER DRAMATIC HOMEMADE AFRICAN MOVIE POSTERS FROM 1980S
Behold, all the dramatic glory of African movies posters from the 1980s and 1990s.
These types of posters would often be painted on flour sacks or pieces of canvas as advertisements for mobile cinemas in Ghana. This was a trend that came about after the invention of VCRs and video cassettes.
Entrepreneuring individuals would buy a set and travel around to show movies. Clearly, they needed something more rugged than a regular paper movie poster, so they would go for these fabric versions instead.
In addition to being more durable, these were also more creative than the originals, as you can see from these examples. The artists would epic scenes that weren't even in the movie to lure in audiences.
