STARSHIP TROOPERS 2 - POSTER FROM GHANA
With the arrival of video and video cassettes during 1980s In Ghana (West Africa) a small-scale film distribution mobile Cinema was created. This small size mobile " Cinema " operators were equipped with a television a Video and some times with a small portable generator and were moving from town to town from village to village operating and showing their films! (During the day inside social clubs or houses and during the night in the open air).
In order to attract more customers and in order to advertise their mission and business the need of huge posters was created and born!
The local artists after viewing the film were creating large size posters using oil paint on canvas!
This is such a poster for Starship Troopers – bizarre, odd, yet very fascinating... Beware: "Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation" poster from Ghana.
