The Bob Baker Marionette Theater is excited to present Subject: Los Angeles– four nights of L.A. ephemera featuring archival films, guest presenters, music, and puppets that explore hidden threads of L.A. history. April 14th kicks off the first of four programs that surface and interrogate mythologies of Los Angeles, starting with the idea of Los Angeles as Eden.
Please join us April 28th for the second installment, Los Angeles in the Streets, which will look at the history of political demonstrations, public art, and other kinds of spectacle in L.A. Save the dates for May 12th and May 26th as we roll out our other exciting evening variety spectaculars.
Subject: Los Angeles was co-curated by Veggie Cloud's Courtney Stephens and Kate Wolf, and the UCLA Film and Television Archive's KJ Relth. Special thanks to the Prelinger Archives, Russell M. Saunders Film Collection, and Mark Quigley of the UCLA Film & Television Archive.
