Ephemera(l) City: Los Angeles in Travelogues, Industrial Films & Amateur Movies

November 20, 2015 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM


“Ephemera(l) City: Los Angeles in Travelogues, Industrial Films & Amateur Movies”

Booster dreams and noirish visions comingle in tonight’s program covering almost 60 years of Los Angeles history as seen through a selection of travelogues, industrial films and amateur movies. Between the Ford Motor Company’s silent-era portrait of a booming young metropolis and the DWP’s early 1970s promotion of an imminent, water-drenched Pacific Rim economic explosion, street-level views of Depression-era Downtown and the end of the Pacific Electric railway capture the ever-shifting landscapes and fortunes of the city.

Total running time of program: approx. 120 min. Note: live musical accompaniment provided by Cliff Retallick for the silent portion of this program.

FREE Admission for all UCLA students with valid I.D.!
