Watts Riots 50th Anniversary: Screening & Panel Discussion

Aero Theatre

1328 Montana Avenue, Santa Monica, CA 90403


Join the American Cinematheque for a screening of I BUILD THE TOWER, Edward Landler and Brad Byer’s definitive feature documentary on the Watts Towers and their creator, Sabato Rodia. Made with exclusive access to Rodia’s family and the cooperation of the Watts community, the film follows Rodia’s life through the creation of his monumental mosaic-covered spires and their recognition as an architectural and sculptural masterpiece.
I BUILD THE TOWER also tells the story of Watts. Showing this story as Rodia saw it over the 30 years of his work on the towers, the film details the growth of the conditions that led to the violence of 1965 - and to Watts embracing the Watts Towers as a symbol of freedom and initiative. Following the screening, panelists with perspectives drawn from long-term experience with Watts and the Watts Towers - for some going back to before 1965 - will address the issues raised in the film about our local history that are still influencing our society today.
