Let it not be said that the San Diego Free Press lacks culture. Herewith is a classic of the French cabaret genre by one of its exemplars, Édith “The Little Sparrow” Piaf of Paris (not to be confused with Edie “The Little Pigeon” Pilaf, of New York). For those of of us not conversant in French, we include an English translation, courtesy of Bec Hill, provided not only as captioned text, but animated graphics. Enjoy!
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
