LOST LANDSCAPES OF LOS ANGELES (2016. 83 min.) is a documentary tracing the changing city of Los Angeles (1920s-1960s), showing how its landscape expresses an almost infinite collection of mythologies. Made from home movies and studio-produced "process plates" -- background images of the city shot by studio cinematographers for rear projection in feature films -- LOST LANDSCAPES depicts places, people, work and daily life during a period of rapid urban development. While audience members are encouraged to comment, discuss and ask questions during the screening of this silent film, it is fundamentally a contemplative film that shows the life and growth of the U.S.'s preeminent Western metropolis as the product of an active petroleum industry, highway builders, urban "redevelopers," working people and the sum of countless individual acts.
