Director Thom Andersen In Person!
LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF
After the feature film is a discussion with director Thom Andersen, who will screen his short film "The Tony Longo Trilogy" (14 min.) which was inspired by his work re-editing LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF.
LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF
2003, 170 min, USA, Dir: Thom Andersen

In the Los Angeles Times, Kenneth Turan called LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF “the best documentary ever made about Los Angeles.” 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. For the 10th anniversary of its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Thom Andersen's sardonic video essay about the tangled relationship between the movies and our metropolis was remastered and re-edited; it's now funnier, sharper and bigger. A Cinematheque favorite!
