In the 1980s Ghana's first cinemas started popping up in mobile form with local artists advertising movie showings with these brightly colored posters.
Thousands of wonderful hand-painted movie posters have been made over the years by dozens of talented artists in Ghana. Orbit is supplied by Deadly Prey Gallery in Chicago.
