Communion Los Angeles traces California’s oldest freeway, the 110, as it courses from the San Gabriel Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, defining and dividing the communities it is designed to serve. Viewing the 35-miles of blacktop as both infrastructure and public architecture, this journey highlights dichotomies of mobility, technology and urban space.
Peter Bo Rappmund and Adam R. Levine display an unconventional combination to represent multiple elements of Los Angeles. Exploring the 110 freeway of California, from the mountains to the ocean, the film defines various communities in the city. In the context of Dziga Vertov and his “city symphony,” Communion Los Angeles highlights locational relations and geographical forms which subtly hints the social and cultural contexts. The 68-minute theatrical version is installed in two channels, divided into two screens ─ one for day and the other for night.
