Produced by Christopher Ruggia, this 1990s student film captures the stretch of Guadalupe Street that borders the University of Texas at Austin campus, commonly known as “the Drag.” The film follows a young man as he locks up at Aaron’s Rock & Roll record store, venturing down the street for food. While walking from and back to the record store, he passes several extant landmarks near the UT campus, including the University Co-op and the Dobie Center.
