Summary, etc.:
Beginning at origins in the Eastern Sierra Nevada, PSYCHOHYDROGRAPHY tracks the flow of water, step-by-step, through Owens Valley, aqueducts, and concrete troughs in the city of Los Angeles, to Long Beach delta and the Pacific Ocean. Constructed from tens of thousands of still images and their neighboring sounds, the film is also a journey through a natural and industrial topography of striking conflicts and contradictions. In its contemplation of the natural process of an essential element of life, and the banal, unseen system that supplies Los Angeles its water, PSYCHOHYDROGRAPHY is a meditation on our dependence on and alienation from the natural world.
