Los Angeles Plays Itself
Mar 15 - Mar 16

(Thom Andersen, United States, 2003, DCP, 169 min)

Two nights only!
New digital restoration!

Saturday, Mar 15 at 07:00PM
Sunday, Mar 16 at 07:00PM

Los Angeles' cinematic self receives a thoroughly enjoyable meta-treatment in Thom Andersen's engrossing video essay about one of the most extensively filmed cities on earth, featuring scenes from films as wide-ranging as Chinatown and Killer of Sheep.

In this documentary, Andersen charts the cinematic trajectories of the city's iconic and less recognizable fixtures. In one instance we watch a bank transform into a hotel, then into an orphanage through its various on-screen iterations. A new DCP of a longtime NWFF audience favorite, voted best documentary of 2004 by the Village Voice.
