Reading the billboards, the cars, the people, and the graffiti of the street as cultural signs, Rosler extracts the network of social power and domination that determines whose culture gets represented where, asking whose culture is reported in the press and whose is forced to exist in the street? Composed of Super-8 footage shot while cruising the streets of her predominantly Latino neighborhood with a sound track of music and radio snippets as well as a voiced text, the video successfully combines social analysis with everyday observation, drawing attention to the structure of society's fabric and reevaluating what the dominant culture calls "trash."
