Cinema of Liberia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The cinema of Liberia, or Liberian cinema, refers to the filmmaking industry in Liberia. Liberian cinema has played an important part in Liberian culture and in recent years has begun flourishing again after the civil war.

Liberian cinema was impacted by the civil war, when the last cinema was closed in the 1990s.[1] Liberia's capital, Monrovia, had three cinemas, with only one still in existence today.[2] Since the end of the Ebola epidemic, the country's first art-house cinema is scheduled to be opened after the ban on gatherings was lifted.[1][3]
