AFRICAN & DIASPORA CINEMA


Graduation project dealing with the history of cinema and film posters in Africa and its diaspora (Congo, Ghana, Nigeria, Haiti and USA).

The creative part of the project consists of a series of six illustrated and screen printed posters on canvas (inspired by Ghanaian hand painted 
film posters). The series features posters of filmmakers from different countries (Oscar Micheaux – U.S.A., Spike Lee – U.S.A., Raoul Peck – Haiti, Ralph Nwadike – Nigeria and Alain Leandre Baker from Congo).
The main poster with all filmmakers in one.
