In association with Pacific Standard Time Presents Modern Architecture in LA.
Thom Andersen's 34-minute film, "Get Out of the Car" (2010), is a coda to his visual treatise on LA as a character: "Los Angeles Plays Itself" (2003). A poetic journey of LA's dazzling, bygone signage, Anderson's short film complements Heinz Emigholz's full-length feature: "Schindler's Houses" (2006). With a similar vibe to "Get Out of the Car," Emigholz's film is a moving visual portrait comprised of 40 LA-area homes designed and built between 1921 and 1952 by modernist residential architect Rudolph Schindler. Part of LACMA's Los Angeles Past, Present and Future series, the screening is presented by the city's oldest-running ongoing experimental film program, Los Angeles Filmforum, in association with Pacific Standard Time Presents Modern Architecture in LA.
