Los Angeles Now
Producer: Phillip Rodriguez
Genre: Documentary
Program Length: 1 Episode/60 Minutes
Broadcast Date: November 23, 2004

Once the whitest city in America, Los Angeles is now the most multicultural city in the history of the world. Once an empty, bucolic space, L.A. is now a disorienting megalopolis.

Yet the city’s cultural transformation has gone largely overlooked by the media, the movies, and even by the many of the city’s residents themselves. The entertainment industry continues to churn out counterfeit and outmoded images of L.A. while ignoring the many new stories emerging from the city’s increasingly diverse population.

Los Angeles Now looks beyond Baywatch and Blade Runner to create a fresh and candid portrait of America’s second largest city. The film uses creative visuals and computer-generated imagery to evoke the city’s vast array of moods and rhythms. And it abandons the polite P.C. language of 90s multiculturalism to explore challenging questions and provocative points of view.
