As you can see by the title, I’ve posted a number of these before. These are hand painted large scale fabric posters used to promote traveling cinema throughout Ghana. The films will be shown anywhere available; a town center or on a barn wall, usually off the back of a truck. All you need is the film, a projector and a few of these beautiful posters and you’re in business. It would seem the people of Ghana go for the horror movie most of all. They’re violent, weird and beautiful. Most of the films are American with a sprinkling of home grown and Nigerian imports.
