In honor of their exhibition Baptized by Beefcake: The Golden Age of Hand-Painted Movie Posters from Ghana, we have partnered with Poster House for a screening of Basket Case, one of the many classic horror films featured in the exhibition.

Prior to the screening, audiences will hear from Poster House Chief Curator, Angelina Lippert, about why horror and action movies from the 1980s and 1990s make up the majority of hand-painted Ghanaian movie posters, and why Basket Case in particular reflects Ghanaian cultural values in the 1990s.
