Eighteenth Busiversary (2008-2009)
Join Flying Focus in celebration of 18 years of creating social justice
videos. Parts one and two of the "Eighteenth Busiversary" give some idea
about who makes up Flying Focus and why they created the 13 shows (made up
of 24 half-hour episodes) between November 2008 and October 2009. Five
producers as well as a few video volunteers appear on screen to introduce
2-1/2 minute clips from these programs.
Topics include gentrification, US policy in the Middle East (Iraq,
Israel/Palestine), civil liberties, animal rights, US policy in Latin
America (Peru) and Africa (Congo), Blackwater's "private army,"
sustainability, immigrant rights, issues surrounding the 2008 election,
and inner peace through Buddhism.
The Busiversary was compiled by Flying Focus founding member Dan
Handelman, with clips from Barb Greene, Yvonne Simmons, Jeff Bugbee, PC
Peri (who worked with Tianli to produce a show this year, as well as
acquiring footage for 5 other programs and coordinating field tapings),
and Dan. Guests include independent producer and Flying Focus associate
Jim Lockhart as well as Jordan McDaniel, who taped a show about Gaza. The
studio introductions were once again directed by longtime FFVC member Moss
The Video Bus premiered on November 18, 1991 and has been running weekly
