LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF
LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF (Original Cut)
2003, 169 min, Dir: Thom Andersen

Southern California practically bleeds celluloid; virtually everywhere you turn, you’ll see a location that once doubled as a film set. Director Thom Andersen plays private eye in this sardonic video essay, revisiting the scenes of cinematic crimes and triumphs and unraveling the tangled relationship between the movies and our metropolis. Both Los Angeles history buffs and cinema enthusiasts will marvel at the hundreds of archival and film clips revealing an almost secret history of the City of Angels. A Cinematheque favorite - see it now on the big screen!
