Seventeenth Busiversary (2007-2008)
Flying Focus celebrates its 17th year providing videos on social justice issues
on cable access via the weekly show, the Flying Focus Video Bus. On the
"Seventeenth Busiversary," seven people introduce clips from 14 shows (made up of
24 half-hour episodes) they produced between November 2007 and October 2008.
Those producers, along with Field Production Coordinator PC Peri, who taped 9 of
the 14 shows, appear on screen to introduce short clips from these programs.
Topics include gentrification, US policy in the Middle East (Iraq, Iran,
Israel/Palestine), civil liberties/Guantanamo, health care via vegetarian diets,
a new trade deal known as "NAFTA with guns," empowering people with mental health
issues, Native American perspectives on sustainability, corporate influence on
the media, nuclear issues and concerns in Peru, Bolivia, Nigeria, the Congo, and
The Busiversary was compiled by Flying Focus founding member Dan Handelman, with
clips from Barb Greene, Yvonne Simmons, Dave Hall (who worked with Caleb Heymann
on the sustainability show),Adam Bernstein, Daniel Webb and Jeff Bugbee. The
studio introductions were once again directed by longtime FFVC member Moss Drake.
Some of the two-minute clips are already up on the internet at
http://www.flyingfocus.org/videoclips.html , but to get a
full idea of the scope of our work in a short time (not to mention what we look
like!), watch the Busiversary.
