Redemption Square

A journey through the hidden world of Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles.

Dec. 2017, 18 min.

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 the center of downtown Los Angeles.

 Told exclusively through the voices of people who spend time in the park and those who seek to redesign it, the film brings to life the enduring spirit of this contentious space: a power that gives anyone the chance to discover their identity and the world around them, no matter what the park looks like or how other people think of it.  Directed by John Moody Featuring  Lisa Biagiotti  &  Lorraine Morland  Original Music by  Nick Myers  & Todd Caldwell Sound Design by  Colin Yarck  Graphic Design by  John Cranston  Cinematography by  Drew Ganyer  & Garrett Lamb Produced by  Anne Whiston Spirn  An Invisible Cities Studio &  MIT DUSP  Production
