Los Angeles: On Film and On Record
October 1, 2020 - August 1, 2021
When: 12:00am - 11:45pm

Location:

Location: 
CSUN Library Website

Los Angeles exists in our collective cultural imagination, heavily influenced by depictions of the city on film, though it is also a place of brick and mortar; adobe and asphalt. Los Angeles: On Film and On Record is an online journey through film and archives. It examines a number of popular films that feature the City of Angels within the storyline, setting, or both, and compares these visions, interpretations, and variations of movie Los Angeles with the documentary record of real Los Angeles, using archival and other primary sources from Special Collections & Archives.

The exhibit consists of four parts. Part 1, LA Aspirations, explores its role as a hub of opportunity, while part 2, LA Critique, questions Los Angeles as a site of the American dream. Part 3, LA Living, looks at the ways films and filmmakers have attempted to depict "real" Los Angeles. Finally, Part 4, LA Aesthetic, considers ways LA's landscape, architectural features, and infrastructure appear in films, shaping perceptions of the city.

As you explore the exhibit, we encourage you to consider the choices each filmmaker made, and the version of Los Angeles they chose to present. What truths does each film contain? How do they create or reinforce stereotypes about people and places? Who is absent, misrepresented, maligned, or celebrated in narratives about the city, and why?

Virtual Talk-Shop: Well Wishes for Stella Castillo

RSVP Required

Go to:
Thursday, October 1, 2020
When: 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Location:

Location: 
Zoom

Please join us in wishing a fond farewell to Stella Castillo, the L.A. as Subject Community Archives Specialist.

Stella was hired as the first ever L.A. as Subject Community Archives Specialist in 2018, a position made possible by the California State Library “Pitch an Idea” program. During the first year of the project, Stella worked closely with existing and new LAAS members in updating their profiles in the L.A. as Subject Directory by holding workshops and one-on-one meetings. All of these efforts were in preparation for the L.A. as Subject Directory Portal launch that happened in the fall of 2019. The Portal added new features for members, such as a photo gallery, event calendar, and article pages (see Lanterman House entry as an example).

Funded for a 2nd year, Stella continued to engage with members, individually and in small groups, and working with the grant project team to develop an open source version of a Collective Directory Portal that other affinity groups could freely use to centralize their collection information.

Stella also presented work on the 25-year evolution of the L.A. as Subject membership at the Digital Public Library of American and the Society of American Archivists conferences. She also has been instrumental in contributing to the Virtual Talk-Shops; social media posts; Archives Bazaar 2020 planning; and online tutorials and instruction videos.

All the while, Stella’s accomplishments were done with professionalism, affability, and intelligence. She is a tremendous colleague, archivist, and L.A. as Subject advocate.

Lummis' El Alisal: National Monument?
Tuesday, October 20, 2020
When: 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Location:

Location: 

Christian Rodriguez, curator of the building and Operations Coordinator of Occidental Colleges Institute for the Study of Los Angeles will make the case for the national importance of  “El Alsal” and advocate for its adoption as a National Monument. 

 “If there ever has been a place in Los Angeles that captures the spirit of a time and person it is El Alisal, the home, garden and passion of Charles Fletcher Lummis in Highland Park. From 1897, when Lummis started building the house out of local stone taken from the adjacent Arroyo Seco, until his death in 1928, the idiosyncratically styled concoction, which was completed in 1910, served as a center of a movement labeled the ‘arroyo culture’.”—Sam Hall Kaplan-Los Angeles Times
