The exhibit by Maryanne Bilham and Robert Knight traveled down to Los Angeles to be on display in the lobby of Mondrian Los Angeles from December 15, 2015 through February 15, 2016 and expresses the persona of Mondrian LA with icons of rock history and emerging talent including Billy Idol, Lorde and Amanda Hardy, to name a few. A portion of proceeds will be donated to MusiCares during the exhibition's stay at Mondrian Los Angeles Hotel. Join us for an evening of music.

The wild, unexpected success of Easy Rider ushered in what is now seen as one of the most significant turning points in film history, making pathologically rebellious Dennis Hopper an unlikely King Of Hollywood for a day. Incredibly, that day was filmed—and not just filmed, but captured by two innovative and inventive filmmakers. Co-directed by L.M. Kit Carson and Lawrence Schiller, The American Dreamer is many things: an insightful document of a complex artist in the midst of his creative process, a self-reflective exploration and explosion of vérité filmmaking tropes, and a playful and entertaining snapshot of the private life of one of Hollywood’s most eccentric stars at the peak of his newly found fame. Hopper boldly allowed access to his crazy life in all its aspects: firing his rifles off in the desert, editing The Last Movie, stripping naked and walking through downtown Taos, New Mexico, pontificating about art and life, and holding forth guru-like to a room full of naked women. Fortuitously timed, fantastically made, and virtually unseen, The American Dreamer is the great ‘70s film doc you always wished existed, presented here in its new restoration.
Dirs. L.M. Kit Carson & Lawrence Schiller, 1971, Blu-ray, 90 min.
