Two Journeys is a project by The Golden Pixel Cooperative, conceived by Viktoria Schmid and Lisa Truttmann, in collaboration with Los Angeles-based filmmakers Rebecca Baron and Nora Sweeney. Through this collective exchange, two short film programs were compiled, consisting of films that relate broadly to the two places of their creation, Vienna and Los Angeles. Austria and the United States are just starting points – we travel to a library in Buenos Aires, a ranch in rural Mexico, the sky in Switzerland, a pool in Tehran and through intangible spaces and surfaces. The films, including documentary, experimental, and narrative work, range in form, and some defy categories. The works of pioneers such as Chick Strand, Charles Burnett and Friedl vom Gröller are in dialogue with those of filmmakers from the next generation. Taking the title from Vienna to Los Angeles: Two Journeys, Esther McCoy’s collection of letters between architects residing in Los Angeles and Vienna, the Two Journeys project aims to create a cross cultural conversation through cinema.
