This documentary was filmed in Los Angeles, New York City and San Francisco from 1990 to 1992. At the center of the film is a poster that featured LAPD Chief Daryl Gates superimposed on a NRA shooting target with the text "Casual Drug Users Ought To Be Taken Out and Beaten."
The controversial posters were glued around the city of Los Angeles in March 1991. Post No Bills documents these postering exploits and contains an interview with Daryl Gates discussing the poster.
Post No Bills was first publicly exhibited in October 1992 at the Cork Film Festival. Several days later the Chicago International Film Festival awarded Post No Bills the Silver Hugo for feature-length documentary.
The movie's title comes from lettering found on many construction walls and other city surfaces, indicating that advertisements or handbills are not to be placed on the surface.
