As part of the exhibition, L.A. 225- Los Angeles Through the Eyes of
Artists, a commemorative exhibit for the city's 225th birthday, El
Pueblo Historical Monument will present a free screening of Phillip
Rodriguez' evocative documentary, Los Angeles Now at the Pico House
Gallery on Friday, October 6, 7:30 PM. A discussion with the film maker
will follow the screening.
Los Angeles Now is an artful investigation of the city as it comes of
age and wrestles with its history and its future. The film examines the
cultural and intellectual activity of one of the world's most
influential places at a moment of profound change. The film includes
conversations with a broad range of Los Angeles figures, from acclaimed
actor Salma Hayek and businessman/philanthropist Eli Broad to renowned
author and essayist Richard Rodriguez and Cardinal Roger Mahony.
The film has been honored by New York Anthology Film Archives, Boston
