FILM POSTERS FROM GHANA
Via @JamesUrbaniak and @davidbmetcalfe some truly brain-melting movie-posters from Ghana:
Apparently, these were painted and used by mobile VHS-tape 'cinemas' that travelled from village to village. Each 'cinema' had their own unique and colourful brand-name, like a Jamaican sound-system. Man, I love shit like this.
Three or four years ago I heard about a market-stall somewhere in London - I forget where - that used to flog imported VHS-tapes of Ghanaian-made 'witchcraft' and 'ghost' movies to the local African community. I tried to track some tapes down, but no luck. Also talked to the guys at Le Dernier Cri 'cos I'd heard they had a line on the damn things. But no dice.
If anyone knows where I can get some VHS or DVD-r copies, please get in contact. You will have my undead gratitude. Trade or cash.
