LA CAMIONETA

Expected to Attend: Mark Kendall

Every day, dozens of decommissioned school buses leave the United States and migrate to Guatemala, where they are repaired, repainted, and resurrected as the brightly-colored camionetas that bring most Guatemalans to work. This lyrical film follows the migration of one American bus as well as the personal stories of five individuals whose lives become intertwined with its transformation. What slowly emerges is a vivid and rich meditation on the universal quest for mobility.
