Unlike in Western cinema, where the major theaters are given commercially produced posters to advertise their films, developing nations had to get a little creative. Hence the existence of these hand drawn African movie posters.

I guess in the mid 80s it was common for people to travel from town to town, screening movies, but they had to create their own posters, and sometimes these individuals never even saw the films they were drawing. Which is what makes the hand drawn African movie posters so charming.
