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
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
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 Drake.
