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. LA: Erasure and the Modern City, one of four screenings that LA Filmforum is hosting in association with "Pacific Standard Time Presents Modern Architecture in LA," looks at erasures and traces of the history, and the grid of the modern city. We bring back the marvelous film L.A.X. from 1980, with its timeless mediations on the creation of Los Angeles, while providing a marvelous look at a city that is partly lost. It's paired with two recent short films by Los Angeles-based makers Kate Lain and Huckleberry Lain (no relation) that also look at the erasures of the past, and the rewriting of elements.

Screening (subject to change, and not in this order):
L.A.X., by Fabrice Ziolkowski (1980, 16mm, b&w, sound, 88 min.)
PALIMPSEST, by Kate Lain (2011, super 8mm to digital, b&w, silent, 2.5 min.)
ANTIQUITIES FOR THE QUEEN OF ANGELS, by Huckleberry Lain (2013, digital, color, sound, 10.5min.)

TRT: 101 minutes
