Burnett was a key figure in the LA Rebellion movement of the 1970s, one of several radical black filmmakers based at the UCLA film school who sought to create a new form of African-American art cinema directly opposed to the blaxploitation films of the era.

Combining lyrical elements with a neo-realist documentary style, the film provides a vivid, melancholy snapshot of ghetto life in 70s LA.
