Cohen shot Little Flags in black and white on the streets of lower Manhattan during an early 90s military ticker-tape parade and edited the footage years later. The crowd noises fade and Cohen shows the litter flooding the streets as the urban location looks progressively more ghostly and distant from the present. Everyone loves a parade — except for the dead.
