Tracing the places culturally relevant to the first inhabitants of the Los Angeles Basin, HAZY VALLEY reveals the forgotten sediments of a multi-layered megacity: indigenous L.A.
In response to the ecological crisis, members of the Kizh Nation are fighting to preserve native ecosystems and the city’s ignored archeological heritage. When unexpected historic connection points emerge between the Kizh/Gabrieleño people and Germany, the call to challenge the ‚California Dream‘ and its oblivious narratives becomes even more urgent.
Advanced development stage. Looking for production partners in Germany
