Film Fridays with Tom & Gillian provides a virtual community space facilitated by Enoch Pratt librarians to gather and discuss chosen films. All the titles we are showing are available from Kanopy or Hoopla, which patrons can access using their Enoch Pratt library card. We will announce each week’s films the week before and patrons can tune in to the virtual meeting on Fridays at 2 pm to engage in the discussion.
Join us today for a conversation regarding Cities on Film. One focuses on the depictions of the city through the American cinematic canon, while the other uses the backdrop of the architecture of a city to frame a budding romance.
- LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF (2003)
Director Thom Andersson's film essay uses representations of Los Angeles in iconic films to investigate the real history of the city and how certain neighborhoods and communities are glossed over and not written into the historical record. The film won Best Documentary Feature at the 2003 Vancouver International Film Festival and Independent/Experimental Film and Video Award at the 2004 Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award.

- COLUMBUS (2017)
Two architecture enthusiasts - one a Columbus native and the other a visitor in town for the weekend - strike up a friendship moving through the landscape filled with iconic mid-century architecture. They reckon with their own futures while considering ideas implicit in the modernist buildings of the midwestern city. The film premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for a slew of awards at the Gotham Independent Film Awards and the Independent Spirit Awards. Click here to watch the trailer.
