Twenty-Sixth Busiversary (2016-17)

We ordinarily try to let presenters or events play out at length on the Flying Focus Video Bus. Once a year we compact those shows into short (2-3 minute) clips for a retrospective show. This "Busiversary" features 13 programs produced between Nov. 2016 and Oct. 2017. Three of the four producers speak about why they made the shows they did, and some of the crew make appearances as well.

Part 1 features two commemorations of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (from 2016 and 2017). Four shows examine organizing for change and systems of government: Teaching for Social Justice speaker Kevin Kumashiro, a panel looking at money in politics, Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman giving a local talk, and visionary speaker Charles Eisenstein.

Part 2 starts out with a World Bank participant on climate change. Two shows taped at the Portland conference on Mental Health and Law Enforcement (Elyn Saks and police at mental health crises) lead into two shows on police issues-- a City Council hearing about Portland officers tasering a man and a march for justice and equality. The show closes out with two more panels: examining the 75th anniversary of the internment of Japanese Americans, and Asian American / Pacific Islanders connecting struggles for racial justice.

Hear from producers PC Peri, Barb Greene and Dan Handelman (who also sits in for Mike Brown), and volunteer Steve Roberts talking about the programs they made. The Video Bus premiered on November 18, 1991 and has run weekly ever since.
