BAMM.tv Presents: This One’s for You – Episode 1 – “Stands Still”

This is a project I’ve developed at BAMM.tv (http://bamm.tv). Please check out the website – http://tofu.bamm.tv/ to hear more from Bill DeWitt and and dive deeper into this program. Website includes essays, critical analysis of the lyrics, pictures, and much, much more. Hell, there’s even a suggested reading list.

“Stands Still” (Episode #1) features San Francisco songwriter Phil Lang performing a song about combat for Bill DeWitt, a Vietnam Vet who spent the 25+ years after the war as a substance abuse and family therapist. Lang’s song serves as a doorway into an unflinching conversation covering DeWitt’s harrowing experience in Vietnam, his observations of the long-term effects of war on Veterans, and how the culpability of war is becoming more distant to the civilian public. Shot at the beautiful Albany Memorial Building (Albany, CA).
