THE EXILES (Free Event)

  • LA Historic State Park (Under Broadway St. Bridge) 1245 N. Spring Street Los Angeles, CA

The first in a series of four screenings sponsored by the Los Angeles Historic State Park called Fringe LA. Local filmmaker Eugene Kotlyarenko curates the selection and introduces the film underneath the stars. Recently rediscovered and truly ripe for discovery, THE EXILES (Kent McKenzie, 1961) is a window into historic and sadly marginalized Los Angeles, a poetic time capsule of a film, and also features "exhilarating documentary-like photography, rocking period music, and the soulful details of an oppressed culture pushed to the edge." No cost associated with the event, so bring a friend, the whole family, and a blanket. - SBP
