Abstract:

"On one hot afternoon in suburban Los Angeles, a man is forced to come to grips with everything in his life he has never come to grips with. A cinematic portrait of suburban 'stealth' housing: the utopia of the middle class turned into dystopic sterility by media-driven paranoia. The film examines the effects of this claustrophobic environment on one man, one family, one nation. What does it really mean to live behind stucco walls and security gates in a latter-day Levittown, painted with walls of Navajo white [sic] and decorated with swap meet art? Independence day describes twenty increasingly nightmarish minutes in one such possible life. Using an understated, non-TV visual style and complex sound design, the film is a relentless, scary, funny and beautiful account of a modern spiritual journey"--Accompanying material.
