Collection: Single Titles
Filmed in Susan Mogul’s Los Angeles multi-ethnic working class neighborhood, Highland Park, Everyday Echo Street: A Summer Diary, is an insider’s view of how home and neighborhood are constructed in everyday relations. Composed of conversational and anecdotal portraits of neighbors and merchants, Susan ruminates about the past and the present, as she looks out her apartment window. Struggling to arrive at a new definition of “home,” she ponders loss, middle age, and living alone.
“The entire world, immanently, glimpsed by a woman in a window in Highland Park, Los Angeles.”--Bill Horrigan, Wexner Center for the Arts
"Something to cheer, at once loads of fun and the kind of intimate insider's journey through a Los Angeles neighborhood that you seldom see on television… A highly personalized film threaded by the filmmaker's self-effacing wit and candid introspection about her life." --Howard Rosenberg, Los Angeles Times
