USA 2018 68min DCP color feature Experimental
Overview

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.

Review

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.

Peter Bo Rappmund’s style can be simply defined as a journey traversing space. His films are a topographical chronicle of culturally and politically defined territories ─ Tectonics (2012) serves as an existential portrait of the Mexico-United States border, Topophilia (2015) unfolds along the 800-mile Trans-Alaska Pipeline System, Communion Los Angeles follows the 110 Freeway in Los Angeles. Sound is an original component in Rappmund’s films. Although its volume may be manipulated, it is recorded from the filming location or its neighboring spots. Communion Los Angeles, which will be exhibited at this year’s festival, integrates the congested city noise with the undecipherable sound of trickling water, car horn, and wind. Rappmund matchlessly drives the narrative through an intense montage rhythm without directly referring to a sociopolitical issue.
