Inventing L.A. (2009)

19 Mar

117m; U.S.

Director: Peter Jones, Mark A. Catalena

Synopsis: By tracing the history of the Chandler family that founded the Los Angeles Times, this 116-minute PBS documentary also tells important parts of the history of southern California, including decades of fierce anti-union campaigns and manipulation of politicians and public resources for personal gain. The film also describes internal battles between ultraconservative and relatively liberal family members that led to the paper’s rapid decline.
