Description
My bachelor project introduces and celebrates the African and Diaspora cinema. I chose this topic because I wanted to touch on a very interesting subject which people in general don´t know much about. My project consists of two parts; the dissertation and the creative part.

My dissertation introduced the cinema history and film posters from four different countries (Congo, Ghana, Nigeria and United States of America).

The creative part celebrates the African and Diaspora cinema, therefore I created a series of six different posters. Each one features 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).
  • Special thanks to Jepchumba from African Digital Art, who was my advisor during this project.

  • These posters were hand drawn and printed on cloth, a bit strange but very effective for this project!
  • The main poster, with all filmmakers in one.
  • Oscar Micheaux - United States of America
  • Spike Lee - United States of Amerca
  • Raoul Peck - Haiti
  • Ralph Nwadike - Nigeria
