Additional Information

In Smog, director Franco Rossi offers an atmospheric meditation on the pervasive alienation and class systems inherent to American life in the sprawling City of Angels, as seen through the outsider perspectives of a visiting Italian attorney (Enrico Maria Salerno) and a small circle of Italian expats. Notable sequences prominently feature midcentury modern landmarks, including Los Angeles International Airport and the Pierre Koenig-designed Stahl Residence.
