The Soft Epic, or: Savages of the Pacific West, part of Freewaves, Out the Window series

On November 21st, 2011, The Soft Epic, or: Savages of the Pacific West will be presented on the Los Angeles County Metro bus system. Visit the Freewaves–Out the Window website for more information.

Out the Window—-Short personal videos are presented in the unusual context of the Los Angeles County Metro bus system, starting in the winter of 2011. On Transit TV, we show animations, documentaries, narratives and experimental videos about, by and in Los Angeles.

By sharing perspectives from individual households and neighborhoods to the city and region at large, Out the Window creates a mosaic of the many social, cultural, economic and creative layers of a complex American city. Out the Window is a multi-phase project, with the first phase involving videos made by L.A. youth and the second, by artists, activists and storytellers. The third phase will hopefully combine youth, artists and nonprofit organizations and will prove art can be everywhere. A lofty yet sincere goal of Out the Window is to pierce the beige walls of anonymity as seen from the cursory, mobile platforms of the bus, delivering to bus riders the human faces behind the facades.
