Los Angeles Plays Itself
September 1, 2019 • 7:30 pm PDT
Thom Andersen’s sardonic video essay Los Angeles Plays Itself includes hundreds of archival and film clips revealing the City of Angels as told through its representation in films. This Sunday, the rarely screened movie, now remastered and re-edited for its 10th anniversary, gets an outing at Aero Theatre in Santa Monica. Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan has called Los Angeles Plays Itself “the best documentary ever made about Los Angeles.”
