Los Angeles Plays Itself – “Per amor a les arts” film series in La Filmoteca

As a part of the film series “Per amor a les arts” by La Filmoteca de Catalunya, which uses cinema as a tool for dialogue with other artistic disciplines such as design, architecture, opera, literature, dance, painting music or theatre. The Fundació Mies van der Rohe participates by proposing films in which architecture plays a relevant role and providing the context through its presentation.

The architect Enric Llorach introduces us  “Los Angeles Plays Itself” a film by Thom Andersen that compares the city as it exists in real life with its depictions on-screen to examine how L.A. and its massive community have been misrepresented over the years.
