Video: "When Los Angeles is a Man"
"L.A. has a vague, cool restlessness--a mystery running through its veins," says the narrator of this new video about our fair city. He's got a throaty voice that suggests he's unshaven, sleepy-headed, and ready to spend another night roaming this magnificent city. He's Los Angeles...the man.
The two-minute film is "the second installment in a new video series, [for which] French filmmaker Jean-Claude Thibaut teamed up with Louis Vuitton in an attempt to personify Lala Land," explains Refinery29.
The film series takes a look at world cities through the lens of gender. Had you ever thought of L.A. as a man? For Thibaut, Los Angeles is about youth, bravery, aloofness.
Says Thibaut of L.A.: "He's a lonely and secretive player, blazing and unrefined, dedicating himself to his dreams - and incidentally ours - with a disconcerting ease."
Gentlemen, is this your L.A.?
