Ghanan movie posters

Our friend Noah turned us on to this site which sells vintage posters that were hand-painted by Ghanans after the introduction of video and video cassettes to Ghana in the 1980’s.  In order to lure more customers to the mobile movie houses, people would paint these posters after having watched the films, using oil paint.  As it mentions on the site, the artist had the freedom to make the images more attractive by adding things to the posters that were not necessarily in the films!
