As part of the event series “California Screening”, STATE OF THE ART presents LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF by Thom Andersen.

CalArts professor Thom Andersen directs the digital video essay film “Los Angeles Plays Itself” (2003, 169 min), titled after a gay porn classic by Fred Halsted. Using clips from well-known mainstream movies to lesser-known obscurities, Andersen explores the myths and realities of the city as produced by Hollywood and as viewed by contemporary philosophy.
