Banham’s Los Angeles
In the documentary, Banham drives around LA assisted by an imaginary GPS guide called Baeda-Kar. He reflects on the city’s varied architecture and meets up with some of its residents to get a sense of its unique appeal. To compliment this very personal, documentary vision of Los Angeles, my audiovisual essay brings together images and sounds from fiction films made around the time Banham was carrying out his investigations. I draw on work by filmmakers who, like Banham, were outsiders, whether from other parts of the US (Robert Altman, John Cassavetes, Jonathan Kaplan, Ivan Dixon) or Europe (Michelangelo Antonioni, Agnès Varda, Jacques Deray). The attitude of these filmmakers toward LA, whilst by no means uncritical, was generally one of fascination, closely mirroring that of Banham. I use voiceover and musical extracts from the BBC documentary to both comment upon the images and to regulate the piece’s overall rhythm.

Kendrick Lamar's video director Kahlil Joseph takes his hypnotic art to MOCA
The video is like a feverish dream of Los Angeles. Beneath the sprawling, horizontal cityscape, a marching band grooves on an empty field. Young boys drip-dry after a dip in the pool. A woman with a tower of gray hair and a kindly gaze stands before a cooler of beer. Muscular, tattooed men pose for a group portrait. A horse gallops down a dim city avenue. And a man hangs upside-down, vampire-like, from a street light at night.
