The work-in-progress of the Academy Museum in Los Angeles, designed by architect Renzo Piano, is scheduled for opening in 2019. In “Architecture + Cinema + Hollywood”, the three are connected through images of the museum’s construction at the present time, historic and contemporary examples of architecture, mementos from classic movies, metaphors of Hollywood, and segments from my previous films.

This video explores some streets and “stradaccie” (“ugly streets” in Italian) in Los Angeles, not as tourists, but as observers of the multiple messages they carry. It covers an area of approximately 10 x 16 miles (16 x 25 kilometers) which includes Inglewood, Ocean Park, Santa Monica, Brentwood, Westwood, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Hollywood, Downtown L.A., Chinatown and Koreatown. The street is the primary urban space. It acts upon us 24/7 throughout our lives. It synthetize what we are as a culture and also contributes in shaping what we are as individuals.
