WATCH: A Little Something Extra

This November, Red Line D.C. will wrap and release with a final short film called, SEE / LINE. But until then, let’s cool our heels and countdown the days with bonus footage from the project.

Here, Red line commuters dish their opinions on the metro and what it’s like to ride our favorite metro route.

Destinations & Arrivals

An independent documentary is a lot like a Red line train. Time and again, you must expect delays.

After many challenges and much ado, we’re FINALLY approaching our stop! This fall, The Red Line D.C. Project will release the long-awaited, much-anticipated documentary “See / Line,”  a two-part series on metro graffiti.

We’ve taken in feedback and tightened our story, combining part one “See Something, Say Something,” with the never-before-seen “Crossing the Line.” And like any good two-for-one special, both parts work together to explore the Red line’s significance and the relationship between access and aesthetics in the District.

Check back for event details, teaser footage and post-production updates. We’ll be using the summer to workshop the project and spark community engagement.

If you’re interested in getting involved with Red Line D.C. or hosting a screening, we’re looking for a few good editors and organizations to contribute their time, space and/or skills. Contact citylovedc@gmail.com or @_RedLineDC_ for more information.

Red Eye: Everyday We See Something New

Look what’s happening on the MBT: None other than Cita “CheLove” Sadeli at work on a new mural! The artist behind “Everyday I See Something New,” the “#ShowOff” mural, and many other awesome works of city art, is now leaving her mark with the #Crossroadsmural. She, and two other artists — Coby Kennedy and Maxx Moses — have taken over the massive backside of the Verizon building, between the Rhode Island Ave. and NoMa – Gallaudet U (formerly, New York Ave.) metro stations.

We stopped by the mural site earlier this week to capture the work in progress. And what we saw was just the kick in the pants needed to get back on our docu game. Stay tuned for tales on reviving The Red Line D.C. Project.

Until then, check out these photos of Cita and her crew in-action. Or, better yet, stop by the spot and see it for yourself …
