Love Letters in Light


Love Letters in Light - Poetry, Resilience, Community

This captivating film is a poignant tribute to the sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles, capturing the soul and spirit of the city during one of its most testing times. The film intimately chronicles the lives of five distinct poets and the diverse participants of a public open call, all brought together by a singular mission: to pen fifteen-word love letters to their beloved city. Amid the echoing silence of the pandemic, their words resonate with collective heartbreak, yearning, and relentless hope. As a testament to the resilience of the city, their verses shine brightly on LED signs across ten LA County Library locations, turning places of learning into beacons of public mourning and shared optimism. This project, produced in collaboration with the LA County Library, is a testament to the enduring human spirit, emphasizing the importance of community, creativity, and healing during unprecedented times.
