San Francisco: Artists' Television Access, 1990. Vintage flyer for the premiere of Danny Plotnick's 1990 experimental short film, "Death Sled II: Steel-Belted Romeos," with an addition screening of Plotnick's 1989 short "CREEP," as well as films by Mark Street, Phillip R. Ford, Phillip Guilbeau, Laura Rosow, Jim Sikora, and Dana Mendelssohn, at the Artists' Television Access (ATA), Saturday, February 3, 1990.

According to director Danny Plotnick's website, "Death Sled II: Steel-Belted Romeos" is a "tale of backwoods blacktop mayhem—Two dim-witted, lead-footed guidos from Bayonne, New Jersey bust through stoplight after stoplight in their turbo-charged, bad-assed, jet-black Pontiac Grand Prix until their mean machine nearly eighty-sixes another hunk of American steel. And that's just the start of it ... A confrontation, an assault, fists-a-flying, and traffic violations."

A trailblazer for the independent film scene of the 1990s, Plotnick made over twenty films since the late 1980s, and has released three VHS compilations and one DVD compilation. His coffee table art book on the history of Super 8 filmmaking, "Super 8: An Illustrated History" was published in 2020.

Formed in 1986, the ATA is a San Francisco-based, artist-run, non-profit, which promotes underground and experimental art, as well as providing a screening venue for independent films, exhibitions, performances, workshops, and events.

8.5 x 11 inches on pink paper. Very Good plus, with light overall dampstaining and two pinholes.
