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.

Amazing film!
9 November 2003 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film when it showed on PBS here in the early 90's. I recently had the opportunity to see the film again. I have to say this is one of the most impressive documentaries I have ever seen. The filmmakers really told this story well on so many different levels. It seems like a simple enough storyline but it truly is very complicated.

I got a lot more out of seeing it this time - maybe because time has gone by I could put it into context better or maybe because I could see a lot of the little subtle nuances that are going on that I never noticed before. Highly recommend you watching this film if you get the chance. Very fun.
