Abstract

This paper gathers potent visual images of the city of Los Angeles, by examining three contemporary films: L.A. Story (1991), Boyz N the Hood (1991), and Grand Canyon (1991).It argues that popular culture, and in particular popular film, is an integral part of the portrayal of the cultural landscape. These films reveal various geographies that are rooted in economic, political, and cultural contexts. Film is one way by which previously marginalized groups can disseminate ideas from the margins and provide alternative experiences of place
