Directed by Tony Buba | 1988

With Tony Buba, Sal Carollo

"Defies description as either documentary or fiction."
—Washington Post

Filmmaker Tony Buba chronicles the decline of his hometown of Braddock, PA, a once-thriving steel town that is now a post-industrial wasteland, in this offbeat pseudo-documentary. With an eye for the idiosyncratic folkways of American life, Buba—playing an egotistical caricature of himself—pieces together real and scripted footage to create an alternately deadpan and incisive portrait of Reagan-era optimism’s grim flipside.
