the la > x film festival follows the bridge built by honda on the following day, september 13, 2017, and presents a day’s worth of films from l.a. artists, as well as productions where l.a. is the central point of interest.

the film festival, curated by film scholar dr. marc glöde will be shown at the kino arsenal – institute for film and video-art from 10 am to 10 pm. showcasing works from edgar arceneaux, john baldessari, james benning, morgan fisher, alex hubbard, rodney mcmillian, sarah morris, ryan trecartin and jennifer west.

the program also shows berlin and l.a. as sister cities who despite their differences, look back on a long and broad film tradition, reaching from mainstream-cinema to artistic experimental films – which are the main focus of this program. themes span the spectrum of historic to current structural positions, and from current aspects of film material to gender issues. la > x provides the platform and opportunity for an intense experience – and intense exchange with – l.a.

the film presentations will be complemented by discussions surrounding the topic „statements and projections.“ on the one hand, the question „is everything political?“ will be addressed by the artists in attendance. on the other, a discussion will be held on perspectives about the city partnership between berlin and los angeles.
