Pasadena Freeway Stills (1974)



The torso of a man. His arms reach into the off-screen space and pick up photographs, which he then places for us to see in the middle of a glass panel positioned between him and the spectator. The speed of the procedure increases, until 24 photographs per second become visible, thus turning into a cinematic trajectory driving down the Pasadena freeway. 

Director: Gary Beydler.

    My brother and I were just talking about this freeway last week. We live in Northern California now. Commuted to downtown L.A. thousands of times. Lived in Glendale, Pasadena, Highland Park, Eagle Rock, and surrounding areas. Worked in downtown Los Angeles. Great film.
