About this event
Cost This event is free
The late 1980s in Ghana saw the emergence of exuberant new visual modes of expression in a new local and innovative film industry (alongside that of Nigeria commonly referred to as Nollywood), especially in the ways films were promoted by vivid hand painted posters on sack or canvass. These dramatic and highly charged images, usually some six or seven feet high, were conspicuously displayed by the roadside or in prominent public positions to alert film-goers to the release of new films. Many of these films were made locally in Ghana or imported from the Nollywood film industry of Nigeria. OPEN: Tuesday – Saturday 10.30 – 17.00, late night Thursday 10.30 – 20.00. CLOSED: Sunday and Monday
