"..nearing the completion of el valley centro, i began planning an urban companion piece, los, that was to be a portrait of los angeles. it seemed logical, for the politics of water certainly run from the valley to the city. los would have the same structure as el valley centro and would look and listen with the same intensity. the two films would be connected with the last shot of el valley centro pumping water out of the valley over wheeler ridge while the first shot of los would show mulholland’s first spillway (still in use) bringing water into l.a." james benning
