Streetsfilms con Español: L.A. Gets Diagonal Crosswalks, Again

To view this film with subtitles, click on the image and select "Spanish" of the menu on the bottom left.

While our CicLAvia Streetfilms have been viewed more times by Angelenos than any other film, two L.A. Streetfilms have garnered over 10,000 views nationwide. One of those was our look at the Scramble Crosswalks, where pedestrians are given their own time to cross the street in whatever direction they choose.

Or, in the case of UCLA students, you can do whatever you want during the “pedestrian” time in the street.

Our friend David Barboza has added subtitles to this 2008 “classic” Streetfilm. This film was a lot of fun to make, and it’s worth a second look if you enjoyed it years ago or a first look if the subtitles make it more available.

    Ah, that makes sense Damien. Thanks for the clarification. All we do at that intersection at USC is hide from hit-and-run drivers…
