A Collection of 32 Bizarre African Movie Posters From the 1980s and 1990s

Here's a load of African movie posters from the 1980s and '90s, some of which are rather liberal interpretations of Hollywood blockbusters. Viewed through the conditioning of our own culture and ignorance we find them really funny, which probably wasn't their original intent.

Is that racist? It might be a bit patronising - a consequence of our cosseted ignorance - but probably no more patronising than Bono and Bob Geldof have a tendency to be with their self-serving philanthropy. Still, at least we're honest about it, and not pampered billionaires. And the posters are really funny. Please be aware... you might need a strong stomach for some of these...
