LA as

This evening’s screening of 14 shorts features experimental, narrative, and documentary films and videos that use the city of Los Angeles in overtly narrative or thematic roles, thereby allowing the city to serve not only as the setting, but as a protagonist as well. Charles Doran, the program’s curator, presents the LA premiere of his Westsider; Patrick Robins debuts Hair Cowboy, a documentary about a homeless hairdresser; and Echo Park film students Ava Hess and Valentina Martin offer up a music video and experimental “film poem,” respectively.
