Summary
For five decades, filmmaker Tony Buba has chronicled the industrial decline of his hometown, the once prosperous steeltown of Braddock, Pennsylvania. This collection includes 27 of his short films along with his 1988 feature-length film, Lightning over Braddock, a mixture of politically potent documentary portraiture and comedic re-enactments that anticipated the work of modern documentarians from Michael Moore to The daily show.
