An Ode to Film

Author’s Note: To celebrate a year in Los Angeles, I wanted to find a way to commemorate and share my memories thus far of this wonderful city. For one year, I’ve been compiling the list of films I’ve watched in The City of Angels (see what I did there?). The content of tonight’s story is experimental. Sharing a story written entirely from the list of films felt right to post here because so many people were involved in the movies I’ve watched. I’m so thankful to my family and friends for the suggestions which opened me to try a new form of storytelling. 

Without further adieu, enjoy tonight’s story!
