This chapter discusses the second type of landscape film, which entails a greater degree of subjectivity on the part of the filmmaker, in intending to relate the current look of landscape to its former incarnations, whether the buildings or structures that formerly stood in the same spot, or the events that took place right there years or centuries ago. Such a device is termed “psychogeographical landscaping”, because it refers to works that simultaneously depict landscape as a historical location and a lived space, paying particular attention to the emotional effects of the territory in the subject, who may be both the viewer and the filmmaker. The objective record of landscape is combined with its historical and sociological interpretation, thereby offering a series of counter-narratives of urban change in cities such as Los Angeles or London.
