The most evident feature of this movie is that it is projected along side a bare flashing light bulb which has itself been filmed and appears within the movie.

The major portion of the film, however, is composed of secondhand images which are largely drawn from the T.V. documentary of an unspectacular kind, but which thematically are concerned with the 'surface' of the industrial institution and political world. The sound is a 'scramble' of the various commentaries, music and dialogue of the collaged film which gradually become identified with their respective images during the course of the film. The awareness of the audience is returned to their actual situation (viewing a film by reference to the bulb) and the perceptual problems which its flashing creates. M.L.G. 1970.
