Starring Dolph Lundgren, Bridge of Dragons was a pulpy action/romance from the late 90s. The film's international success is evident in this hand-painted advertisement from Ghana. Frequently unable to import official posters, theaters in Ghana hired enterprising artists to create and embellish designs to promote the films in their own style. The works, true to their folk style, are hand-lettered in the local vernacular, adding to the character of the works. This painting has exciting perspective emphasizing the excitement of the exotic martial arts the artists endeavored to communicate to their unfamiliar audience. Over time, these singular pieces of movie history have become sought after by collectors the world over.
