Falling generally into the category of a political documentary, this difficult film is a meditation on American life using the medium of film. Here, split screen techniques, fast montages and distorted sound are used to bear the weight of the film's symbolism. It examines the deterioration of the American quality of life. This film was produced with a grant from the American Film Institute.
