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
