About this Performance

The Valley came into the national consciousness with Gen X film classics like Karate Kid, Valley Girl, Foxes, and Encino Man, but the Valley is also home to a racially and economically diverse population that was rarely if ever represented in popular culture. Hosted by Wynter Mitchell-Rohrbaugh and featuring special guests (TBA), this multimedia panel event goes beyond the white gaze of the era's filmmakers and into the real-life legacies of the Valley.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration opens on February 1, 2022.

The LA Phil’s Humanities programs are generously supported by Linda and David Shaheen.
