Thom Andersen’s films investigate the past and present of Los Angeles through architecture, music, and images from Hollywood movies. Today, Andersen discusses his work with legendary film critic J. Hoberman, whose recent book An Army of Phantoms likewise looks at American history through the lens of cinema.
