August 2, 7pm: Screening Redemption Square
A film by John Moody
Runtime: 19:40 min.
Q&A with John Moody and Lorraine Morland.
Synopsis: In the footsteps of many unique Angelenos, a down-on-her-luck woman finds a new identity in Pershing Square, a notoriously unloved space in Downtown Los Angeles.
In response to a major civic effort to completely redesign Downtown LA’s problem child of a public square, Redemption Square shifts the conversation about its design to explore how public space can change a person’s life. It offers an alternative vision for public life in LA based on the diverse perceptions, memories, and identities that come together in the park every day.
