Streetfilms con subtítulos: Lessons From LA: A Rush Hour Drive with a City Planner.

I have to be honest, I’ve owed Deborah Murphy an apology for over three years.  You see, I misheard the director and I told her to wear a white shirt to the filming of  Lessons From LA: A Rush Hour Drive with a City Planner.  Now seems as good a time as ever to make that apology in writing.

Sorry, Deborah.

This is a fun little Streetfilm we put together in 2008.  Given L.A.’s national reputation as “Car Culture Capital” we thought it would be fun to take a long time transportation reformer and make her talk about L.A. while driving around Hollywood at rush hour.  Perverse of us.

A lot of you have probably never seen this film, as L.A. Streetblog’s readership was less than 1/6th of what it is now, so this reposting provides a great chance to see it again or for the first time.

A full list of all the other films David Barboza has subtitled for us can be found after the jump.
