In the third Decline of Western Civilization documentary, Penelope Spheeris (The Little Rascals) filmed four bands (Final Conflict, Litmus Green, Naked Aggression, The Resistance) in 35mm and Dolby, and she also segues into social commentary on homeless kids in Los Angeles, interviewing some who left broken homes or abusive parents. With conversations covering everything from alienation to alcoholism, Spheeris talks to teens living on the street or squatting in abandoned buildings. Other individuals interviewed include an unstable mother, an LAPD officer, and a paralyzed youth living on a disability. Winner of the "Freedom of Expression" Award at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival.
