More than most cities, Los Angeles is one that is thoroughly invested with the idea and practice of construction and reconstruction. It is the place where people go to reconstruct themselves, and it is a city whose built environment is always being constructed, torn down, and reformed, in space and meaning. Constructions of Los Angeles, one of four screenings that L.A. Filmforum is hosting in association with Pacific Standard Time Presents Modern Architecture in L.A., includes some very rare documents of old Los Angeles from that Academy Film Archive, a classic deconstruction of the Watts Towers by Baylis Glascock; and several new works exploring the mysteries of the built and lost past and present of Los Angeles, by filmmakers Laura Kraning, Stephen Connelly (from England), and Johann Lurf (from Austria).

Curated by Mark Toscano and Adam Hyman
