Flyer promoting for an early screening of John Waters’ Eat Your Makeup, with Short Circuit, the animation short by then-8-year-old David Wise, who went on to develop Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Son of gallerist Howard Wise, David Wise trained with Stan VanDerBeek, Len Lye, and other instrumental figures of underground cinema. Short Circuit quickly gained international recognition, and the filmmaker was lecturing and hosting screenings of his film before he turned ten.
