Light Brigade

 The work of Peter Bo Rappmund, a follower of patient observers such as Thom Andersen and James Benning, is typified by topographical observation and examination of the mark man leaves on the landscape. As in Tectonics (2012, 29th Festival) and Topophilia (2017), the premise of the movie is to follow a line from beginning to end. Together with the co-director Adam Levine, he covers the 36 miles of Interstate 110, a freeway that crosses Los Angeles from mountains to the sea. Shifting from day to night, Communion Los Angeles makes frequent use of time-lapse photography, revealing the artifice of constructing moving images. As in a travel diary, the plot is the journey, a cumulative series of exhaustive, curious portrayals of the hordes of cars, the periphery and its waste as the filmmakers travel along a spine that contains multitudes but also splits everything it comes across.
