FROM THE NAKED EYE CINEMA - A grand scale oeuvre featuring Washington D. C. as the star. Ethel Merman makes a comeback as "Americana" - Uncle Sam in drag. A Brutal Scrap between yuppies over the wares of an Apple Annie ensues on the steps of the New York Stock Exchange. Through the use of tableau vivant, the paintings of Rockwell Kent, Edward Lannan, and Raphael Sayer come to life and combine with visions of Lower East Side tennements and urban squalor to illustrate the lies of broken promises behind "The Greatness Of A Nation"
