Join us for a film portrait and candid discussion of America's second largest city following the close of its "Anglo century" (1900-2000). We are screening a stylish and exciting film on Los Angeles, a which uses a groundbreaking high-definition format to explore challenging questions and provocative points of view. How will the city's new Latino and Asian majorities work with other ethnic groups to create a cultural consensus? What is the future of L.A.'s unprecedented multiculturalism-will the city's many neighborhoods balkanize, or coalesce? And despite earthquakes and a seemingly insatiable desire to destroy and rebuild, can the city retain a sense of history?"  This is the first in a series of films and discussions on Los Angeles.
