ACCRA: Oko Afutu knows exactly what will get people flocking into theaters to watch the British horror film "Dog Soldiers": a poster showing a werewolf biting off a man's head.From his front porch in a suburb of Ghana's capital, Afutu spends his days painting garish movie posters for the films that show at movie theaters around Accra. In his quest to entice cinemagoers, Afutu spares no detail. If a movie is bloody, his posters will be bloody. So, too, were the posters at Accra movie theaters.Frimpong's collection includes many from what Ernie Wolfe, an art dealer who collects Ghanaian posters and has also authored two books on the subject, calls the "golden age" of movie art.Afutu, however, doesn't pay much attention to the international hubbub over his art.He's too busy painting, watching movies and coming up with new poster ideas.
