Description


Set in two iconic locales--Hollywood's legendary Chateau Marmont and Fresno's amazing Forestiere's Underground Garden--Waiting for Lipchitz at Chateau Marmont is a bold and colorful critique of the California Dream through the perspective of screenwriter who has gone from riches to rags. A kind of Hollywood version of Waiting for Godot, Janigian's Lipchitz is a stunningly original take on the absent protagonist and what is illuminated in the void.
