Storyline

Political heavy-weights populate this urgent and humorous documentary on the detonative mix of art and politics as embodied in the work of infamous "guerilla" poster artist Robbie Conal, a professional painter who estimates that hundreds of thousands of his caricatured paintings-as-posters have been splattered across the United States' urban streets, militantly affixed by himself and his cult following of urban guerilla volunteers to construction sites, traffic light switching boxes and any other surface area large enough to house one of these satirical images. Specializing in what he calls "info-tainment," Conal's posters offer an immediate response to today's headlines through the expressionistically decaying depiction of the socially and politically powerful accompanied by several words of dichotomous text.

A great documentary!

"Post No Bills" is an amazing project. I love documentaries that are shot over a period of time. Everyone should watch how Clay Walker films Conal over a period of years as his life unfolds. And to make it even better, it was shot on film and not video.

Conal's posters are known world wide. Just the other night I was watching "Menace II Society" and saw his artwork displayed in the background of scenes. Walker's film gave me a whole new perspective.
