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 other countries.
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
