X-Streams

USA, 1982 (MIFF 1984)

Director: Myron Emery

Seven separate visions of Los Angeles, sprawling, fast-paced city of millions. Myron Emery teaches optical printing at the California Institute of the Arts, using apparatus left over from the first "Star Wars" film. "X-Streams" is the work of seven of his students (including Adrian Bruch from Melbourne); only one of them was a native of the "City of the Angels”.
