Twenty-Second Busiversary (2012-2013)
While the subjects of war and peace, nuclear issues and LGBTQ rights are
part of this "Busiversary," the most common theme of the 12 shows we
produced in 2012-2013 was race and racism.
Shows about police and FBI racial profiling (and "terrorism" stings), how
race (and mental illness and economics) impacts the death penalty, and
"Jim Crow" laws that continue persisting to this day make up part 1. The
"Jim Crow" laws are addressed by attorney and author Michelle Alexander,
housing expert Kevin Boyle, and a forum on African American Dads.
On part 2, after a clip from Kylar Broadus, a trans man of color who works
for justice, the clips feature talk of those who went to jail pursuing
Hanford down-winder, the annual Hiroshima Day memorial, Portlanders who
went to Pakistan to investigate the effects of drone strikes, and Cathy
Breen's talk about her 10 years later visit to Iraq.
We use the "Busiversary" to connect with the viewers, since most of the
time we're the anonymous faces behind the cameras and in the edit room.
The Busiversary was compiled by Flying Focus founding member Dan
Handelman, with clips from Dan, Barb Greene and Daniel Webb. Founding
member PC Peri, our field footage coordinator, talks about the 5 shows he
taped or helped tape for the group. Per tradition, the studio
introductions were directed by FFVC member Moss Drake. Videographer Joe
appears on two introductions on shows he taped, and Allen Evans, who
served as floor director in the studio, taped one of this year's shows.
The Video Bus has been running weekly since November 18, 1991.
