Entries are due today for the Society for Moving Images About the Built Environment's "Personal Infrastructures" competition, which asks for three minute films that tell "stories about memorable characters and the infrastructures in their lives." Ten winners will have their films screened at the MAK Center here in LA and in Chicago (the top two will win cash). In the video above, Cal Poly Pomona students ride the Blue Line rails for a day so you don't have to (you still have to). You can also spend a day following a bike activist around the city, including to a City Council meeting. And we're oddly charmed by this Stevenson Ranch woman's description of "the intimacy of anonymity in one suburban fortress."
