WED 3/13 / 8:30 / S1
Dir: Mark Kendall
(USA, Guatemala, 72 min., 2012)
Every day, dozens of decommissioned school buses leave the United States on a southward migration that carries them to Guatemala, where they are repaired, repainted, and resurrected as the brightly-colored camionetas that bring the vast majority of Guatemalans to work each day. “La Camioneta” follows one such bus on its transformative journey: a journey between North and South, between life and death, through an unfolding collection of moments, people, and places that serve to quietly remind us of the interconnected worlds in which we live.
