LA CAMIONETA: THE JOURNEY OF ONE AMERICAN SCHOOL BUS
In person: filmmaker Mark Kendall at both screenings
This documentary follows the incredible journey of a decommissioned Pennsylvania school bus as it makes its way through Mexico and into Guatemala, where it will be retooled, repainted and rebooted as a brightly colored camioneta, a privately owned public transport bus. But this friendly beacon to travelers also attracts the unwanted attention of extortion-minded gangs, meaning the hard-working camioneta drivers have taken on a surprisingly dangerous job. Official Selection, 2012 SXSW and Los Angeles Film Festivals.
DIR/PROD Mark Kendall; PROD Rafael González. Guatemala/US, 2012, color, 71 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED V L
