Memory Inversion

Lynne Kirby and Erika Suderburg

1988, 16:30 minutes, colour, English


Memory Inversion (Los Angeles) is an anti-documentary about Los Angeles. The tape deals with other times, spaces and people that inhabit L.A. and in a sense who found it, above and below the surface of a city considered to be nothing but surface. Set in an undetermined future superficially identical to the present and past, Memory Inversion evokes what is already different about the urban landscape of one-dimensional stereotypes.
